He attended the public schools of Charleston until the horrors of Civil War drove the Gardner family as refugees to the old home form near Orangeburg. In 1864, Mr. Gardner, then a boy of Hi, enlisted in (he state troop*. As a member of Gooding’s Brigade, the rear guard of Johnston’s army, he took part in the retreat from Savannah to Raleigh. The memory that memorable march in the cold, rainy days of February, 1865, still remains with Mr. Gardner as one of the horrors of civil strife. "It ruined all the way just like it ta raining nom (December Slot)," said Mr. Gardner in speaking of his experiences. “We ! followed the artillery end the mud was I knee deep.
