Advertisement for Information for Pension for J. A. Hale

Bulloch County Chapter, U. D. C., Statesboro, Ga., is trying to secure a pension for Mrs. J. A. Hale, widow of Capt. W. F. L. Hale, who during 1863 was stationed at Charleston, S. C., as aid-de-camp to General Beauregard in the Confederate army. Captain Hale had come to General Beauregard in a badly wounded condition, unfit for service in the field. He established a lookout from the steeple of St. Michael's Church, and just before the attacks on Battery Wagner, on Morros Island, he translated a flag signal dispatch from General Gilmore, U. S. A., to Admiral Dahlgreen, United States naval commander, reading: "Cease firing at six o'clock, when I make the assault." Any one who knew Captain Hale as a Confederate soldier and is interested in securing a pension for his aged wife will please write to the Chapter mentioned above.
