Columbia Looks Back at Horrific End to Civil War-- Part 2

Columbia is in the midst of a look back at those days and is engaging both residents and visitors about the Civil War, slavery, reconstruction and where the city is now.

Special events include lectures and performances, including exhibits of war artifacts at the South Carolina State Museum and the Confederate State Relic Room & Military Museum.

The movies "Selma," "Gone With the Wind" and "Gone With the Wind REDUX" will be shown.

Both Columbia, the capital of the state and Charleston, where the Civil War began, fell on the same day.  I have been writing about Charleston in my Running the Blockade Civil War Naval Blog.

A photo of the 1818 Hampton-Preston Mansion accompanies the article.  It escaped burning.
