Reminiscences of the Sixties
Charles Crosland (1845-1918), who served in the 19th South Carolina Cavalry Battalion, with Company H of the Confederate Army's Hampton Legion, recounts his combat experiences, his father's death, and the destruction of the Crosland family plantation in Bennetsville. He also references the sinking of the USS Housatonic by the Confederate submarine, the H.L. Hunley. Lula Crosland Ricaud later reproduced the book in part in her Family of Edward and Ann Snead Crosland, published in 1958.
