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.
