War Ruins in the Low Country by taffy

War Ruins in the Low Country

One route between Charleston and Savannah takes you through what is called 'low country' since it's so close to sea level and quite marshy. In addition are historical artifacts from both the US Revolutionary War in the late 1700s and the Civil war in the 1860s. These ruins of an Anglican church convey the devastation of the wars -- it had been burned in each of the wars and in the end, left as a remembrance or reminder.
So interesting!

Will we ever learn from history? Doubtful. Sadly doubtful. What a beautiful structure this must've been.

Nicely captured. I think we visited here back in 2010 when we went to Savannah. I want to go back, especially now that I'm seeing your great images.

Great image with lovely details. I must admit when I first looked I thought Europe somewhere, just doesn't look American to my mind, or rather not what I imagined.

Beautiful scene

Sherman’s march to the sea burned so many beautiful, important structures. This is quite beautiful and elegant in it’s burned out condition.

Columbia would have looked like Charleston if Sherman hadn't burned everything completely. South Carolina has never recovered.

My knowledge of US history is not strong on detail, thanks for sharing this image and the history behind it. War is such a waste of time, money, people and resources. When will the world learn?

This was obviously a beautiful building - so sad to see it like this especially as it's a church... interestingly, probably built a bit after our house!

Love how you took this with the trees with character seeming to embrace it

What a beautiful shell of a building.

It must have been a very imposing building before it was ruined. It photographs so well with the brick textures. :)

War and religion - so sad how often the two are connected.
Thought-provoking capture, great details.

PS - I just saw this building, photographed in its early ruined state, as part of the "Civil War" documentary by Ken Burns. I recognized it straight away. :)

I would love to see that, there's something about old ruins that I'm drawn to.

What a grand building it must have been!

The ruins are quite a find to show the stately old building but the trees are even more amazing!
