James A. McCrea’s letter reads in part: The proclamation of the President was read and the people inspired by the spirit of the occasion sent forth their glad shouts of joy, and their cheers for Gen. [Rufus] Saxton and the joyful sounds “We are free”, “We are free” echoed far and wide over the sea girt islands of South Carolina.
