THE CHATHAM RIFLES.
; ine nrei in unary company organ
nrtt i .
, ized in this couuty and enlisted in
the (Jon federate army was called
"The Chatham Rifles." During the
winter of 1861,. when the war clouds
were gathering, the young men of
Pittsboro' and vicinity determined
to organize a volunteer military corn-
i pany, and by tne nrst of. April a
j sufficient number had joined and the
officers were elected. As soon as
Fort Sumpter was fired upon and
surrendered, the compauy tendered
its services to Gov. Eihs which were
accepted, and the commissions of
the officers weie dated April 15th.
So that, this was one of the very
first companies in the State to vol
unteer its services. Thb company
was ordered to remain in Pittsboro'
drilling and preparing for active ser
vice, and was not allowed to leave
here until the 28th of May. During
those six weeks our old town was
enlivened by the daily drilling and
parading of our bold soldier ' boyti,
who were the "lion" of the day.
From all parts ot the county .appli
cations were made to join the com
pany, aud many were refused as. it
was decided not to have more than
100 members, besides the officers.
This number was quickly obtained,
and among them was the flower of
our youth. The ladies organized a
sowing society aud were busy mak
ing ciothes for Ihem. They also
made a handsome flag, which was
presented to the company in grand
style. Weil do we remember that
ueiigbtful spring afternoon when the
company was paraded on the lawn
m the oiu "luouipson lot, and tne
tlag was graceful iy presented by
..s Aim i hompson aud received by
Dr. L. A. Hanks, in behalf of the
I company, in a snort aud stirring
speech. Yv no knows whatever be
came of that liag i
At iength orders were received to
march to Eaieigh, aud on the morn
ing of May tne 2.Jth, tents were
struck and the company started for
the seat of war If was a beautiful,
bright May morn, aud Nature serm
ed to smiie piopiiiously upon the
brave men who were going forth to
battle in vvha they believed to be a
hoiy cause. Before leaving, the com
pany was diawn up iu the street in
front of the old Ramsey hotel, and
a most eloquent and soul-stirring
speech was made by Hon. Hugh
Waddell. After. his speech appro
priate prayers were offered by iiev.
U. B. Sutton, and then followed the
sorrowful parang from iovad ones.
Alas ! to many it was the last part
ing. Husbands and wives, mothers
aud sons, brothers and sisters em
braced and wept, aud well they
might weep, for of that gallant band
24 were wounded and 3J died in ser
vice or were killed in batt le !

pany with eleven others was organ

After the battle of Bethel (JunelOih)
the impetuous young soldiers were
anxious to go at once to the seat of
war, for fear the war wouid be over
before they could get there, and,
thinking that the next battle would
be fought near Yorktown they asked
to be sent there. Finally they re
ceived orders to go, aud they ar
rived at Yorktown on the 3rd of July
and were at once put to work dig

THIS BANK; being recently organized, is iu condition to do all classes
of Banking Business upon as favorable ternis as r.riv otJisr Bank in the State:
BANKING SECURITY. The United States Government requires
that a full Statement of the Liabilities and Assets of all National Banks
shall be made and sworn to b- nt least three of the Directors every few
weeks; and besides this Bank Examiners are sent bnt at the pleasure of
the Grovernmeiit: whose duty it. is riiade,tb thoionghly examine into th?
condition of the Bank, hence National Banks afford a larger measure of
protection than anv other Banking system.
CHARACTER AND CAPITAL. The character of the Officers, Diree
tore ahd Stockholders of the fust National Bank is the very highest; and
each Stockholder id, under the National Bank law, responsible for double
the amount of his Stock. No Bank has ncoie chaiacter or credit, or bt tieif
facilities lli.iu the First National.
We want a share of yotfr business. Vie solicit your patron
age. We guarantee entire satisfaction in all business
intrusted to our care.
