This monument at Edisto Memorial Garden in Orangeburg memorializes all those who have served in the military from South Carolina. Located at the site of a confrontation between the Confederate and Union armies that took place in 1865, Edisto Memorial Gardens began in the 1920s as azalea beds and a children’s playground on five acres of land.
The garden now encompasses 175 acres and showcases azaleas, camellias, roses, and centuries-old cypress trees. Special features include a butterfly garden, a sensory garden, and a wetlands park. The Veterans Memorial Park, dedicated on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2009, is the most recent addition to this ever-evolving urban garden.
Special thanks to Thomas Connor of Eutawville for sharing this picture taken in May, 2010.
