    Reproduction of a black and white photograph of the New Capitol, Columbia, S. C. Source: Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, Embracing Scenes of the Occupation of Nashville, the Great Battles around Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain, the Campaign of Atlanta, March to the Sea, and the Great Raid through the Carolinas. New York, 1866. Dimensions: 8"x10". General Sherman left the line of the Savannah river early in February, 1865, and occupied Columbia, S. C., on the morning of the 17th. The sights of this day will never be forgotten by those who witnessed the devastation and suffering caused by the burning of the city. The yet unfurnished edifice, which was to have been the Capitol of the State of South Carolina, was one of the few building of any pretension that escaped the flames. The old Capitol was one of the first buildings burnt.” Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign. (New York: Dover Publications, 1977), p. xvii.
