North west of Beaufort South Carolina are brick walls and pillars standing among the trees near the small town of Sheldon. They are the remains of an old church originally known as Prince William’s Parish Church. Today they are known as the Old Sheldon Church. The church was built sometime between 1745 and 1753. It was burned by the British in 1779 during the Revolutionary War, rebuilt in 1826, and then burned again in 1865 during the Civil War by the Union Army under General William T. Sherman. The ruins of the old church still stand as a reminder of the challenging times in on nations history.
