Joanna – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Joanna, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!

Very interesting. Wish we had more history of Joanna. We wonder why Joanna has no community cemetery.

I wonder how many Joannians know (or care) that the president of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis, and his cabinet, in their flight from Richmond near the end of the Civil War, passed through Joanna (which at that time was named Martin’s Depot) with 1300 soldiers on April 30, 1865. Their route, from Charlotte, took them through Union and Cross Keys. They arrived at Riser’s Brick House (on SC66, 7 miles NE of Joanna) in the afternoon, passed through Martin’s Depot, and spent the night at the Lafayette Young house 5 miles SW of the town. Davis and his cabinet with its escort then proceeded to Abbeville, then on into Georgia, and was captured near Irwinville, GA, on May 10, 1865.
