  • 1910: The formal unveiling and presentation to the nation takes place of a statue of John C. Calhoun in Statuary Hall of the Nation's Capitol building in Washington, D.C. It depicts the statesman with his great coat thrown over his shoulders, "and as if he were going to take a step forward. During the unveiling ceremonies words of praise were showered upon him for the wonderful work he had accomplished in his more than forty years of public service." The King's Mountain Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, sought the selection of Calhoun from a long line of the State's honored sons, and at the presentation ceremonies in the Capitol building in Washington, its Chapter Regent, Miss Gist, and the South Carolina State Regent, unveiled the statue. (Cook, Harriet Heffner, "John C. Calhoun - the Man", The R.L. Bryan Co., Columbia, S.C., 1965, Library of Congress Card No. 65-19779, page 7.)
  • 1920: A mass student walk-out takes place in which more than 400 of the 779 cadets leave campus for home, protesting a "prison camp"-style military discipline, "unscrupulous," or "high-handed" treatment, and the eternal complaint of bad food. President Walter Merritt Riggs refers to the student body as "the Bolshevik Class of 1920." This walk-out leads to the creation of the Department of Student Affairs.
