Current and Recent Funerals 2019

Thursday, May 7, 2015


One Hundred and Fifty years after the Civil War came to a close, we at Magnolia Cemetery stop to commemorate the tragic cost in human lives during the War. The public is invited to join the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Sons of the Confederate Veterans this Saturday May 9, 2015, 10:00 AM at the Soldiers Grounds in Magnolia Cemetery for the sesquicentennial Memorial Day Service.

South Carolina ranks third in lives lost on the Confederate side. It has been said as many men died in captivity during the Civil War as were killed in the whole of the Vietnam War. Here at Magnolia Cemetery we estimate over 3,000 Confederate soldiers are buried within the Soldiers Ground and privately owned family lots.

Many families lost more than one member to this unprecedentedly violent war. One example of a family that suffered a great lost would be the Huger family. Daniel Elliott Huger, II and Carolina Proctor Huger lost three sons to this conflict. Daniel Elliott Huger, III killed in action at Chickamauga, Stephan Proctor Huger killed in action at Shiloh and Joseph Proctor Huger killed in action at Fort Sumpter. All were Great grandsons of Arthur Middleton and Mary Polly Izard of Middleton Place Plantation and Gardens. This story and many others like it can be found in Professor PatrickHarwood’s newest book IN THE ARMS OF ANGELS Charleston’s Treasure of History, Mystery and Artistry sold here at Magnolia and many other location around Charleston.

I encourage you to attend the service and take the time to stroll through the cemetery and witness for yourselves the history of Magnolia Cemetery.
