Also see . . . Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church (1867). Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church was organized by a handful of Civil War survivors who struggled to keep it alive during some of the more difficult years in US history. The sanctuary had been completed in 1854 as a branch of the Independent of Congregational Church of Christ Church Parish, located about 13 miles to the north. Several years after the Civil War began in 1861, the building became a Confederate hospital. Before the war ended, possibly during the confederate evacuation of the area in 1865, a Union artillery shell burst overhead, raining small pieces of scrap iron down through its roof. The Wappetaw church building had been badly abused by troops bivouacked on the grounds and would never again serve a congregation. Most surviving members left the vicinity and relocated, some to Mount Pleasant. (Submitted on January 9, 2011, by Mike Stroud of Bluffton, South Carolina.)
