Young Bascom Anthony stands by a Yankee soldier as the Washington County Courthouse goes up in flames. But little Bascom would not be completely whipped by Sherman's antics. He and other boys around town took the burned tin which came from the roof and made drums. They also followed the railroad destruction and obtained rubber from which they fashioned something similar to a baseball. Times were hard for Bascom Anthony and others during the Civil War but they learned a lot and it served them well. [See Article.] He later served as a Methodist minister at Jacksonville, Ga.
