Construction begun on the building in 1851 and was suspended in 1865 as Sherman’s Union Army marched through Columbia. It was finally completed in 1907, and the copper-domed building has six bronze stars to mark hits from Sherman’s cannons.

Today the State Capitol Building is home to a number of monuments and memorials celebrating people who played a significant role in South Carolina’s history. They also commemorate those who fought and died for the state and the country.
