American History

By Paul Porwoll


The tranquility of the magnificently restored Saint Andrew’s Parish Church, surrounded via stately oaks and historic gravestones, belies a tumultuous earlier. If its partitions may perhaps speak, they'd inform a narrative as previous because the human condition.

Founded within the woodland of a brand new colony, this straightforward Anglican church served planters and their slaves in the course of the heyday of rice and indigo. prior to the Civil battle, ministry shifted to the slaves, and in a while to freed women and men. Following years of decline and forget, Saint Andrew’s rose just like the phoenix.

The heritage of the oldest surviving church south of Virginia and the single closing colonial cruciform church in South Carolina is one among wealth and poverty, acclaim and anonymity, slavery and freedom, warfare and peace, quarrelling and cooperation, failure and success. it's the tale of a church that has refused to die, opposed to all odds.
