“Fate” Stevens was a Private in the 14th South Carolina Infantry who was wounded in combat near Harpers Ferry, VA on 13 September 1862. He survived that wound and the war to return home to his farm in the Edgefield District, but was killed, probably by accident, at age 49. The news clippings seen here have slightly different views of that incident; the Newberry Herald and News of 27 April 1892 on the right, the Winston-Salem Western Sentinel of 5 May on the left.
