We took a tour of Historic Columbia...we walked the Horseshoe of The University of South Carolina (part of the original campus before the Civil War...or the War of Northern Aggression, depending on where you originate from!); we saw one of the oldest churches in Columbia and then went on to the State House. They have stars marking the outside walls where Sherman sent cannonballs into the State House, hoping to destroy it. Very interesting! the last picture is the geographic center of South Carolina, conveniently located near the State House. The kids had fun standing on it and proclaiming that all of SC revolved around them, if only for that brief moment!
