Opis: Address Delivered at the Unveiling of the Ripley Monument at the Magnolia Cemetery - Seabrook E. M.

Excerpt from Address Delivered at the Unveiling of the Ripley Monument at the Magnolia Cemetery: Monday Afternoon, April 3, 1894
Mr. President and Members of the Survivors Association, and Ladies and Gentlemen:
This presence and occasion, whilst it does honor to a distinguished soldier, General Roswell Sabin Ripley, also does great honor to this ancient and historical City of Charleston, by her grateful appreciation of distinguished and patriotic services, rendered in the time of sore trial and great peril.
We are here to commemorate these services, but before dwelling on them, it will not be inappropriate to notice briefly his early life.
General Roswell Sabin Ripley was the son of Christopher Ripley, who was commissioned a captain in the United States Army, by President Madison, and served during the War of 1812. General Ripley was born in Worthington, Ohio, 14th of March, 1823; entered West Point Academy from New York, 1839, and graduated in 1843 with distinction in a class noted for its ability and proficiency. He was assigned to the Second Regiment of the United States Artillery. In July, 1848, he was ordered to join the army in Mexico, and was present at the taking of Montery, and during the siege and surrender of Vera Cruz. As an officer of the army under General Scott's command, he participated in all the battles of that memorable campaign, which illustrated to the world the bravery and skill of the American soldier, whether serving as a regular or as a volunteer. At the Battle of Chapultepec, he was brevetted Major for bravery. After the conclusion of the war with Mexico, he was stationed for a time at Fort Moultrie, on Sullivan's Island, and made many friends in this City of Charleston. In 1853 he married into one of the most respected families of South Carolina, and made his home in this State.
In 1854 he resigned his commission in the United States Army and engaged in a lucrative agency business, which required his frequent presence in Europe.
We come now to the consideration of his services to the State of South Carolina, to the City of Charleston, and to the Confederate Cause.
