Albany feels the pain of war - Albany Times Union

Thu, Dec 15, 2011
Their lonely deaths question the rhetoric of heroic sacrifice. Sgt. William C. Cady, 20, left his Lark Street home and joined the 3rd New York Infantry right after the firing on Fort Sumter. He was killed at the battle of Big Bethel, Virginia, on June 20, 1861. On the day he died, he wrote his mother a letter assuring her that he would do nothing to disappoint her while in the service: "I have too much pride and self-respect to show myself again in Albany with anything at all derogatory to my character or reputation." Addison J. Fellows, 22, died of typhoid at the Union army camp at Hall's Hill, Virginia, on Dec. 30, 1861. He served with the 44th New York Infantry. Henry Gardner 26, served in Company A of the Albany Republican Artillery, a militia organization with a distinguished history that entered the war as the 25th New York Militia. He died in Washington on May 25, 1861. Thomas Goldwaitt, 33, died of typhoid fever at Fort McHenry in Baltimore on Sept. 15, 1861. He served in the 3rd New York Infantry. Before the war, he had been an Albany firefighter and had once saved a disabled woman from a burning building. William A. Jackson, 30, served as colonel of the 18th New York Infantry, but his rank could not save him from the effects of typhus. An 1851 Union College graduate, he was a prominent Albany attorney with solid political connections. An Albany newspaper remembered him as a man "cut down in the prime of life, a young man of no ordinary promise." He died in Washington on Nov. 11, 1861. Charles B. Pierson, 25, was a lieutenant in the 22nd New York Infantry. He died of wounds received at Bull Run. James Rice served in the 18th New York Infantry and was killed on Nov. 6, 1861. He was only 16 and was shot while on guard duty near Munson's Hill, Virginia. His last words were, "Father, I have done my whole duty to my country." John Waterson, 32, was an orderly sergeant in Company A of the 18th Regiment. He perished from disease on July 24, 1861. William Wooley, 34, was a captain in the 25th New York Militia. He died in Washington on July 13, 1861. He had joined the army in poor health, ignored the advice of his friends and was committed to restoring the Union. Still, of all the deaths reported in the Albany newspapers in 1861, perhaps the most moving was that o...

Mary Chesnut's photos open a window on Civil War life - Greenville News

Sat, Nov 19, 2011
April 22, 1861, the Civil War was less than two weeks old. The smoke had scarcely cleared after the bombardment of Fort Sumter that ignited the bloody conflict. Robert E. Lee had just been named commander of the Virginia forces, and the city of Baltimore was besieged by riots. Mary Boykin Chesnut, the wife of a South Carolina senator and aide to Confederate President Jefferson Davis, was deep into her diary on that day. “Arranging my photograph book,” she wrote from the peace of her home in Camden. “On the first pa...

New Michelin head sees South Carolina as leader - Greenville News

Sun, Nov 6, 2011
Michelin’s North American operations last month after an eight-year stint in France, said he welcomed the announcements recently made by Bridgestone Tires in Aiken and Continental Tires in Sumter. “They have finally discovered what we found 35 years ago: South Carolina is a good place to manufacture tires,” he said, recalling how Francoise Michelin went against almost all advice when he moved Michelin’s North American headquarters to the state. He made the remarks at his first external event, a meeting with local media representatives, since he took leadership of the company, which has 12 plants, 8,000 employees and 3,000 ...

Organizers of the free six-week training program for the transportation ... - Greenville News

Sat, Oct 8, 2011
Many of the jobs announced recently — 850 at Bridgestone in Aiken County; 1,700 at Continental Tire near Sumter; 1,200 at ZFLaurens in Laurens County — will require higher-level skills. Most of those jobs will be created over the next five years. Employers are looking for awareness of safety and what it’s like to work in a manufacturing environment, basic computer skills, critical thinking and problem-solving skills; employee understanding of producing quality goods and services and an understanding of workflow and the pace of work. “People need to be able to think on their feet,” Harmon said. “Everyone is expected to be part of the solution.” Also, manufacturing experience is preferred but not required to participate in the training. Candidates of all ages, from the 20s to 50 or so, have expressed interest in the training program, she said. Also, women are stepping up for this training. About 50 percent of those who have considered the training are unemployed and most of the rest are underemployed. Ellcon National, Pierburg, Michelin North America, MAU Workforce Solutions, ZF Group and Advanced Technology Services support the program. They have agreed to interview graduates if they have positions open. Other companies also have expressed interest in participating in the program. Requirements to participate in the training program are: 18 or older Greenville County resident High school diploma, GED or actively working for a GED Passing the WorkKeys exam at a silver level, a grade of 4, prior to beginning training. That is about the level of an eighth-grade education. Have transportation Have a strong work ethic Undergo a background check and drug testing. If the background check turns up a problem, program organizers will work with the candidate to resolve those issues. “We try to screen people in and not out,” Harmon said. The training program is intensive, running five days a week from 8:30 to 3 p.m. Plans are to create night classes next year. With the job market opening up, “we want people who want to learn,” she said. Application for the training program can be made online at www.careerskillsnow.com. Also, applicants can call Bernard Smith at SHARE at 269-0700, ext. 237 or visit him at the SHARE office, 1200 Pendleton St. John Baker, Greenville Works director, said the transportation program is important for the Upstate. “If we can make this work, we can use this model in numerous industry sectors,” he said.
