OLD VIRGINIA

At the beginning of the war, the governor of South Carolina had said to his people, "In this State we may as well go [151] ahead with our cotton and tobacco planting; for if there is a war the battles will be fought, most of them, up there in Old Virginia on the border line."

This speech of Governor Pickens had come true. As we know, the deadliest warfare had been carried on in the "Old Dominion State," as it is called.
