Daniel Mann & The Beaufort Volunteer Artillery

A few weeks ago, we found the Daniel Mann Family burial plot at the Saint Helena Episcopal Churchyard.

I couldn’t read the marker very well, what with the discoloration.  There’s a memorial on findagrave.com.  If you’ll click on the link, you can see the memorial that Candace Pethe made, and all the photos that have been added.

Company A – (also known as Beaufort Volunteer Artillery)  many men from Beaufort District (County) Mustered in June 12, 1861 at Bay Point.

This meant a trip back to Beaufort to see the Arsenal, which I had never really been interested in before, but the Arsenal was the home base for the BVA.  It’s located on Craven, one block away from where Agnes Mann lived in 1900.

Now this sign outside the Arsenal said it was a visitor center.

When we went inside, there were a few knick-knacks for sale, but mostly it was real estate brochures, which we were absolutely not interested in.  We wanted more information about the Arsenal, but there didn’t seem to be any.

And hey!  No dumping!

The drains lead to the river!
