Autograph Document Signed, Andre Harliee, by Order of Colonel Hatch, Quartermaster General, South Carolina Militia, on printed Head Quarters, Quartermaster's Department, lettersheet, Charleston, South Carolina, March 20th, 1861, addressed to Lieutenant Williams of the Ordnance Department, and reads: "...I send you, by order of General Beauregard, I dozen prs. socks for magazines. Please return receipt for same…" Fine. Socks were worn over the shoes of the men working around the gunpowder magazines to prevent their shoe nails from making sparks that could have resulted in explosions. Andrew Turpin Harliee volunteered in the 8th South Carolina Infantry, a unit that was very active fighting from 1st Manassas, the Seven Days Battles through to Gettysburg where they lost 33% of their force. They moved with Longstreet to Georgia where they fought at Chickamauga and Knoxville. They made their return to the Army of Northern Virginia in time to participate in the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor. Harliee as Captain surrendered his regiment with the remaining Army of the Tennessee. Colonel Lewis M. Hatch was very active in the opening phase of the War of Secession. In 1860 Colonel Hatch recommended a select militia of 10,000 men be armed and equipped for service in South Carolina. The South Carolina legislature, however, did not heed his warning. He took an active part in the early correspondence between Major Anderson at Fort Sumter and General Beauregard.
