In the long run. however, the younger element won out. for in 1851) a new system of organization was adopted, practically the same as that which is in o;H ration to-day.
This scheme, however, was not in operation long lx-fore flic Civil War vitally affected the I'niversity. as it did everything else in the South. In 1861 the 123 students liegan to enlist with or without parental consent until only alxuit fifty were left and these wen preparing to volunteer.

Things went from bail to worse until in '63 tin- college was closed Ix-cauM the State troops were called out for tile defense of Georgia.
Though after the war the buildings and grounds of the
l.'niverxity wen- much abused by neglect and by federal soldiers and refugees, the I'niversity rco| cncd. not with l oyx as students, hut with men. the majority of whom were hardened by four years of war. They came then- in earn-

Dr. William Tern-11 endowe«l the Department of Agrieultun-. In 1862 Congress passe l a hind scrip act endowing one college in each stale to teach the mechanic arls and military tactics. Georgia's share in this scrip was sold for $243,000.00. This money was permanent ly invested in 7 per cent. State bonds thereby insuring the I'niversity an ineome of practically $17,000.00 per year. Tlu-n in 1881 the State appropriated money to the institution for the lirst time so that the tuition could Ik- unde free to all students from Georgia. Since that time public and private donations am! appropriations have swelled the income and number of buildings greatly. Ahxire Colb-ge was given by the city of Athens in 1S"3. other buildings Iwing erected at various times by State appropriation.:, until to-day. the I'niversity which started o(T with a campus square of 36 acres has a very extensive campus on which there an ample buildings and dormitories for the accommodation of the live hundred students.
