PREFACE

        The publication of this book under the title of the TAR-HEEL WAR RECORD is an effort to perpetuate to some extent a record of the activities of sons and daughters of the Old North State who were active participants in the great war at home and abroad. It is thought by the publishers that there is a place for such a volume and the following pages are the result of a systematic canvas, bringing together for the benefit of home-folks, relatives and friends (as nearly as possible) an authentic account of the war record of their loved ones. In the years that will swiftly follow this book's publication it will increase in worth to them as a memory of a very epochal time in the history of the world, our country, our state and our home.

FOREWORD

        North Carolina may well feel a strong thrill of pride when the noble enterprise of its men and women during the period of the great world conflict is rehearsed. The men were eager and willing to respond to Old Glory's call to arms and the women at home lost no time in busying themselves in things intended to lessen the suffering of those over-seas. The splendid manhood of the Old North State manifested itself time and again on the field of battle and on the high seas. How many times a North Carolinian's name went down into imperishable fame for deeds of valor and self sacrifice in behalf of the greatest cause of all time. The women at home, God bless them, spurred them on to high purpose, fired their souls with memories of their illustrious ancestors in the days of '64 and afforded them that warmth of love and trust and faith that kept them from doing not less than the best that was in them. Many of our women went overseas as nurses, and canteen workers, and one is sure that their very presence was a blessing to our men. At home in the great drives for humane institutions they surpassed themselves in the good they accomplished.

        Within the covers of this book are presented symposiums of many who gave of themselves and of their substance that the world might be made safe to live in and that the despots of Europe might be erased from the maps of the future generations. When one views the war in retrospection it is then that these sketches gain the significance that give them the place in every North Carolina home that they deserve. There is doubtless in this book mention of some loved one, set forth in all truthfulness, that gives him or her a little firmer hold on our heart.

        The publishers have spent considerable time, money and effort in bringing out this book, but the compensation that is theirs in feeling that they have produced a work worth while is worth more than the material gain to be derived from their labors.

        As it goes to press the writer is looking over several of the proof sheets. He sees many of his dearest friends in the eulogies and one in particular who has died since the book was planned. He was a veteran of the overseas army and contracted trouble of the stomach from which he never fully recovered and which finally resulted in his death. He was a modest fellow, the best friend that one could desire, and when I wrote up a brief review of his service I did so with due modesty, for I knew well how strongly he would object to anything flowery. He just simply wanted the plain facts, without frills. And that is the way he lived and of such men North Carolina is justly proud, for he is typical of the fineness of the manhood of the state.

        We are well aware that in the Liberty Loan Drives North Carolina exceeded her quotas. She exceeded because of the enthusiasm that is hers and the power of pride behind her. In all other drives she duplicated success with success.

        In conclusion, Tar Helia has a world war record that is brim-full of accomplishment and it is hoped that this book may be a lasting tribute to the courage of her men and the character of her women.

JOHN J. GIFFORD.

IN MEMORIAM

        To the Stainless Knights of a stainless cause, who gave their lives for humanity, and the right, in the Great World War.

        "Gone West"--Over the purple hills and beyond the softly glowing rim of life's day, the warrior's spirit takes its flight. Out of the morning, across the white archway of noontide, down to the sunset. Out of the din and clamor, out of the bitterness and strife, out of the fierce passion of the combat, into the dreamless silence whose shadows mark the pathway to the stars. Beyond earth's darkening horizon, through the curtained gloom of night, far from the shoreless sea of fadeless light. Out of the agony of life's Gethsemane, over the quaking summit of Calvary, into the realm of glory, where God's banners never furl, where victory is sure. So the Stainless Knight of a stainless cause moves down the West where earth's last glimmer fades and dies and into God's spreading dawn whose light is eternal, whose breath is cool and sweet. "Gone West."

[BOND, EDWARD G.]

        BOND, EDWARD G., Lieut., was born in Edenton, North Carolina, on the 16th of May, 1890. He was a son of Judge and Mrs. W. M. Bond. After attending the Graded School at Edenton he was sent to Randolph-Macon Academy at Bedford, Virginia, and from there was later sent to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. There he united with the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, and after completing his studies at said University he remained there and read law. Completing his law course, he passed the examination for license to practice before the Supreme Court of North Carolina before his twenty-first birthday. At each of the schools he was regarded as a close and diligent student, and in the few years after he received his law license he rapidly arose in the profession. He was of broad reading, with most retentive memory, a strong public speaker and most interesting in private conversation. Never having been connected in any way with military service, when trouble was threatened along the Mexican border he volunteered and became a member of Company I, an old Edenton military company. He was soon thereafter sent to Camp Glenn, in North Carolina, and after staying there several weeks was sent with his company to the border. When the trouble there had subsided, the regiment to which he belonged was returned to Goldsboro, N. C., and was not disbanded, as it then seemed very certain that our government would soon be involved in war with Germany. Serving at Goldsboro, Charlotte, Hillsboro and other places in guarding bridges and performing various details of military service, he was finally sent to Camp Sevier, near Greenville, S. C. There he remained until he was sent, in May, 1918, as a member of Company L, 119th Infantry, Thirtieth Division, to France. He remained attached to that company until he was sent to a competitive school in Langres, France. After remaining at said school for a period of time he was commissioned and assigned to Company L, 39th Infantry, Fourth Division. On October 10, 1918, he was mortally wounded in battle near Bois de Foret in the Argonne Forest, and from there was finally removed to the hospital in the city of Limoges, where he died from the wounds on November 10, 1918, and was buried in the American Military Cemetery at Limoges, France. He was at all times connected with the Infantry and his commission as Second Lieutenant was dated September 25, 1918.

        Letters from comrades received since his death impute to him full and complete discharge of his duty and speak in the highest terms of his valor and determination as a soldier. He appeared to regard his service to his country as a matter of patriotic duty, which is attested by the fact that a few days before he was wounded he closed a letter by saying:

        "No matter what happens, don't worry about me. I hold my life a matter of little concern in great questions affecting humanity and civilization."


        His older brother lives in Denver, Colorado, practicing law there. His younger brother, before his twentieth birthday, filed application for enlistment into the Aviation service.

        The subject of this sketch was well educated, of high character and widely acquainted.

        Lieut. Bond was the only member of the D. K. E. Fraternity at the University of North Carolina who died in battle or from wounds received in battle, and the society has requested and received a large photograph of him which now hangs on its wall in their hall at Chapel Hill.

GOING OVER

        FIRST SIGHT OF FRANCE

We gradually began to see huge rocks jutting out of the water like the nose of a rough giant, then the green hills and the light houses began to loom into view, and we knew we were almost to the "jumping off point."

INTERIOR OF A BRETON HOME

        If in the course of a long hike or stroll you should pass through a peasant village in that section of France known as Breton, and by way of reviving yourself, should drop by the home of a peasant and ask to be served a glass of "vin blanc," and suddenly, while seated at the dining table in the kitchen, to be served, you should find yourself growing uncomfortable on account of a breeze blowing on the back of your neck--a breeze that seems to have the double fragrance of new mown hay and wild onions, don't move, you are not in a draught, it's the breath of "Daisy," the French peasant's cow, whose apartment adjoins the kitchen.

        For extraordinary heroism in action on August 27, 1918, Sgt. Hinson was in charge of a platoon, delivering a highly concentrated gas cloud attack against the enemy, when the cloud unexpectedly flared back. After leading the men to a place of safety, this soldier went back into the cloud four times at imminent peril to his own life, collecting and rescuing others who had been overcome. Conducting his platoon through heavy machine-gun fire, he put them in charge of another sergeant with instructions to resume their mission, while he again returned to search for gassed men and found all but two. His excellent leadership and unusual courage prevented many casualties and at the same time effected the completion of an important mission.

TROOP TRAIN FROM MONTOIR TO LE MANS

        The little toy engine and the "flat wheel coaches," can we ever forget 'em. Yes, we were lucky on this trip in not having to ride in "Homes 40 and Chaveux 8." (A box car whose capacity is 40 men or 8 horses.)

        Along the route in each village the population would turn out to bid us "good-bye," and the children would ask for cigarettes.

OUR FIRST GAS ATTACK

        Just as we entered the woods near Brocourt we received a welcome that sounded like a hundred thousand Fords--Gr, Gr, Gr, Gr, Gr, then a crack and a boom, boom, then someone said GAS. Scared? No, we were paralyzed--didn't know whether to put on our gas masks or turn and run. Finally our masks were on and then somebody gave: "Permission is given to remove face pieces."

        We would not mind the gas alarm so much if it wouldn't come around meal times.

This sketch will give you some faint conception of the effect of high explosive shells. I take no man's word for this, as it came under my personal observation. People often ask the question: "How does it seem to be hit by a piece of a shell?" And it was probably never better answered than by the British Tommy, who said: "First you 'ears a 'ell of a noise, next you see a nurse bendin' over you, an' 'ear 'er say, 'See if you can drink some of this.'"

        For months you have been seeing in the papers pictures of demolished villages and shell pitted areas, and perhaps you have wondered whether or not the pictures were overdrawn. Let me assure you that they were not, for many and many a time I have gazed on artillery effects that it would be mpossible to exaggerate.

        Instances are related of heroic French artillerymen who have shelled their own homes to fragments because German soldiers had taken possession of, and were occupying them. How can Germany or any other nation expect to crush a people of such indomitable resolution?

Trench warfare was changed to (pen warfare, much to the delight of our soldiers. This is a sketch of one front line just after our boys jumped off at Sommerance, on November 1, 1918.

                         He gave his life, he gave his all,
                         In deadly battle line.


                         The silent stars in love look down,
                         Where lies this loyal son,
                         In frost and dew they weave a crown,
                         Of honors he has won.

IN SEARCH FOR BILLETS, BOUZANCY, FRANCE

        Immediately upon entering a town we looked for shelter, and to find a building with a complete roof was like getting money from home--"seldom done."

Chateau de Belle-fille, near Chemire Le Gaudin. Built in 1130.

        In the olden days of knighthood a beautiful young lady lived here and as all young ladies are, she was deeply in love with a man. He was a man of wealth, fashion and society, a gambler and a drunkard. The priest told him that if he did not stop his evil ways the Lord would destroy him with fire and water. He heeded not the advice, and one day while crossing the Sarth River, lightning struck him and he fell into the water, dead.

        The young lady, to mourn the loss of her lover, locked herself in one of the rooms in this chateau, and stayed shut in for fifty years, when she died. Today the hole in the wall through which she received her meals, is still there.

        There is no tribute high enough that can be paid the lads who fought and fell. Their graves will always be an honor to French soil. These little graves look mighty rough, but it is the best that could be done under the conditions. Even though they are not bedecked with flowers and monuments, they stand for much.

TANKS IN THE MEUSE-ARGONNE

        Those rumbling little tanks go wabbling over the shell-torn grounds up to a stone house. You hear a crack, see a puff of smoke, and the stone house begins to crumble. A few more shots, and a few more Huns rush out with hands over their heads, and you can almost hear them yell "Kamerad." The house is down, prisoners captured and the little tanks wabble to the next victim.

Delousing Machine

        

Illustration

Here is a little insect that with all his faults, and they are many, possesses certain virtues. He has solved the problem of race suicide, for he multiplies with astounding rapidity. He adapts himself easily, not to say gracefully, to uncomfortable, even unsanitary surroundings, and if he were permitted to speak in his own defense, would doubtless challenge you to show on all the pages of history any great military success attained by an army not accompanied and "egged on" as it were by cooties. Personally, I believe you would have difficulty in producing such an example.
