Th« First Messenger from the Masked
Battery in th« Marsh—Accuracy of th«
Gunners—Incidents of th« Cannonading
A Fus« Sh«Ll.
There are a good many people in Charlee­
ton, who had an intimate but somewhat un­
pleasant acquaintance with the Swamp
AngeL One calm night in Al itigust, 1863, a
It was a
strange noise was beard in the «Ir.
noise that some people bad become familiar
with, but one that to the women and chil­
dren in Charleston was entirely unknown.
Some people compared it to the blast of the
last trump, others to the howl of the hyena,
and others to the concentrsted noise of 10,-
000 locomotives rushing through a tunnel in
the air and condensed into a scream of the
most barrowing Intensity.
It was the first Swamp Angel messenger
sent into Charleston by the late Gen. Gill-
more. The watchman at St. Michael’s
steeple sounded the alarm, and the firemen
and other people hurried out in haste. The
shell came from a uiaske«! battery, which
Gan. Gillmore had erected in the marsh at the
extreme south end of Morris Island, and on
the southern borders of the creek which sepa­
rates Morris from Folly Island. In a straight
Un. it was over five milee distant from the
city. Tho battery had l>een constructed un­
der the greatest difficulties, and in what was
considered an impossible place. The idea of
a gun throwing a projectile a distance of five
milee had not at that time penetrated the
minds of the average public, and the arrival
of the first messenger from the Swamp Angel
was as unexpected as it was unpleasant.
The battery was the famous Swamp AngeL
It consisted of a single S-inrh Parrott rifle
mounted in the marsh and surrounded by an
earthwork of circular shape. It burst at
the thirty-sixth round, and that ^waa the end
of the Swamp Angel proper. After this the
bombardment wua directed from the bat­
teries on Morris Island. It is said that the
elevation of the guns was so great that they
could only be used to fire a half dozen times,
and as a matter of fact the people who re­
mained here during the bombarilment be­
came so accustomed to the sound that they
could tell by the sound when a gun had
Gen. Gillmore’B gunners soon attained a
wonderful accuracy in firing their guna It
was said that the Swamp Angel shells were
loaded with “Greek fire,” but this was never
rerifled. Fires frequsntly occurred, and the
firemen always promptly turned out, taking
the chances of the shells. A fire at night in­
variably awoke the Swamp Angel to renewed
activity The shells were sent in generally
at an average rate of one every fifteen or
twenty minutea Occasionally when a gun
would burst there would be a suspension of
operations at the Swamp Angel end of the
line, sometimes for several days. This in­
variably followed a fire in the city. The light
from the blaze would give the gunners at the
Swamp Angel a good mark, and they would
fire more rapidly, which probably cost them
several guns, and then tbs people of Charles­
ton would have a rest until the burst guns
wore replaced.
The accuracy which the Swamp Angel gun­
ners attained was remarkable On one occa­
sion the buildings on Brown’s wharf wore
tired during the day Tho fire department
was promptly on the spot and set to work to
extinguish the flamoa The building was on
the water front, and the dense columns of
smoke offered a splendid target to Gen. Oill-
more’e marksmen. There aro perhaps a
dozen men In Charleston today who will re­
call the Incident and who will testify to the
tact that during the progress of that fire at
least three shells were thrown into the burn­
ing building. The accuracy with which the
riwamp Angel guns were fired. In fact, gave
oolor to tho statenientsubsequently made that
the gunners intentionally refrained from fir­
ing at St. Michael’s steeple, which was never
bit during the entire two years of the bom­
bard menL
Percussion shells were used by the Swamp
Angel gunners for over a year. During this
time the people of Charleston had abundant
time to study the peculiarities of the percus­
sion Parrott shell. The shell, of course,
could only be exploded when it came in con­
tact with a hard surface, and was, therefore,
only dangerous under these conditions In
nine cases out of ten a percussion shell that
struck a wooden building simply buried
itself in the earth and remained there. The
only danger to life or limb, therefore, was in
being struck by the shell on its passago, and
most people soon learned to avoid this
in 1804 there was a startling change in the
condition of things. By this time those who
were cornpellixl to remain in the city ha«l
become used to the Swamp AngeL Up
Co this time not more than two or three
people bad been killed, notwithstanding tho
fact that fully five thousand had been almost
constantly under fire, to say nothing of tho
exposure of tho firemen, who, besides doing
military duty at night along the water front,
were called upon frequently to subdue the
Asmes in tbs shelled district On tho night
of Sept 2, 1864, a building was fired In the
lowu* wards The alarm was sounded, and
•n five minutes the engines were on tbeir way
to tlie scene of the conflagration.
The boom of the alarm tall and ths bright
glare of the fire Invariably caused the
Swamp Angela to wake up and redouble
their attentions to the "doomed city." An
engine, the Phoenix, was on its way to tho
fire, dragged by a dozen or more men. In
Hayne street an obstacle was met A mes­
senger from the Bwamp Angel plunged Into
the earth directly in front of the men, and
making a bole six feet wide and an many feet
deep, burled Itself In the ground A half do-
can mon were precipitated into the r-xreva­
sion, and tho engine, “Old Betsey," followed
suit The shell did not explode, however,
end beyond several painful bruises nobody
was hurt
While the men were getting the dust oat of
their eyee and trying to lift up “Old Betsey"
the “boom" which signified the advent of an­
other messenger from the Swamp Angel was
heard. Then every one stood still and list­
ened. A tew seconds after the boom came
the peculiar and excruciating “whistle"
which marked the passage of the messenger
;h the air The whistle was not famil-
lar There
----- > was an irdeecribable something
about it that matio one shiver It was not
tho old familiar percussion shell scream. A
few momenta later and tho mystery was ex­
plained. Just as every one was “lying low,"
•waiting tho crash, there was another ex­
plosion very near, followed by a doeen baby
screams and a dosen sharp reports, while a
flash of light Illuminated the scene. Then It
was realize«! that our friends, the enemy,
wanted blood. It waa a fuse shell, something
which wo man could dodge
The advent of the fuse shall led to the com­
plete evacuation of the lower part of Uharlew-
ton, and from that time until tho “Union
came in" that portion of the city waa aban-
done-l to the rabbits tho wild pireons end
tbe tats. Work on the fortification “breaet-
works’’ that had been started in Meeting,
near Queen street, was aban.ioned, and al
though Fort Humter still bold out, the fate
of Ubarreston so—«d settled.-€harlmtoo «
