Old Sheldon Church
This beautiful church was built in 1745 as the church of Prince William Parish, South Carolina. It was burned by the British in May 1779. Rebuilt, it was burned again on January 14, 1865 by troops of General Oliver O. Howard, commanding Sherman's right wing coming out of Beaufort. The walls remain today and it is a spectacular place to visit. I have a personal history (hypothetically) with this church: A distant relative led the party that burned it in the Revolution. When it was burned in 1865, my great grandfather was with Sherman's army, marching through Georgia and South Carolina.
