1900, 1909
7 1/2" X 4 1/2" image with 'Millwood, near Columbia, S.C. burned by Gen. Sherman's men, when they burned Columbia, So.Ca. (at end of Confederate War)' handwritten on reverse. Millwood plantation was the home of Wade Hampton III. The ruins of the house can still be seen across from the Target on Garner's Ferry Road in Columbia. Image shows columns (all intact), some beginning to be overgrown by ivy. There is a older man standing, almost in profile, next to the second column from the left.

An image, very similar to this one, appeared in "A Diary from Dixie" by Mary Chestnut Boykin, originally published in 1905. Circa date is based on that information. Also, at least one of the columns fell around 1930, so this image predates.
