D. D. Wallace's SOUTH CAROLINA: A SHORT HISTORY: "Peace came to a South Carolina that held a very credible record. Colonel Nash's regiment of South Carolina volunteers suffered great hardships in the Creek war phase of the conflict. The President appointed a sixth of his new generals from South Carolina. Major-General Thomas Pinckney commanded the Sixth Military District. George Izard of the regulars served under Major-General Wade Hampton on the Canadian front and in March ,1814, was made brigadier to command around Lake Champlain. Major Arthur P. Hayne fought under General Jackson. The gallant Colonel Fenwick was severely wounded at Queenstown. Lieutenant John Templar Shubrick, who later distinguished himself against Algiers, was awarded a handsome sword by the South Carolina legislature for his gallantry against the Guerriere, the Java and the Peacock. Thus South Carolina, patriotic and nationalistic, came through the War of 1812." "Dr. Wallace could have added that Gen. Andrew Jackson, a South Carolina native, won the Battle of New Orleans, which even though the war had ended propelled Jackson to the ultimate prize, the White House." - Donated by Louise Pettus.
