Join us for a commemoration of one of the most significant events leading to the end of the Civil War, of the destruction of the city and the suffering endured by SC and its citizens during Sherman’s March, but also pointing to a rebirth of both Columbia, SC and the nation, unified and free, that led to the prosperity and freedoms we enjoy today. Featuring comments by elected officials and historians; performances by Benedict College Concert Choir, Sandlapper Singers, dancers and artists; and a reading by Columbia’s Poet Laureate, the Columbia, SC community will reflect on this defining moment in the city’s history. Following the commemoration ceremony, explore exhibits, performances, tours, music, readings and more on Main Street.
