Here we have photos on the historical Fort Sumter in South Carolina.
We had traveled to the fort on ferry and were able to capture these
awesome shots.

Fort Sumter in South Carolina is one of the most
famous areas pertaining to the American civil war. On December 20th,
1860, South Carolina delegated a special secession voted unanimously to
secede from the Federal Union. In November, Abraham Lincoln had been
elected President with no support from the southern states. The significance of this election was expressed in South Carolina’s Declaration of the immediate causes secession.

If you would like to learn more about the history and our trip, along with seeing even more photos of this place, they are on our official facebook page. Just look for Derelict Society!

I
was able to gain entrance with a tour group to the Old Charleston Jail
and take so good shots from the inside. Prior to the jail’s
construction, officials used the plot of land on which the building now
stands as a hospital, and workhouse for runaway slaves. Charleston built
the Old City Jail in 1802, and the facility housed prisoners until
closing its doors in 1939. By some accounts, 10,000 people died at the
jail during its 211-year history, be it from execution, injury, or
illness. The jail was meant to house 130 inmates but often held 300
people or more. Therefore, disease and violence ran rampant.

Notable prisoners at the Old City Jail include Lavinia Fisher, her
husband John, Jacque Alexander Tardy, a pirate with a penchant for
poison, and Denmark Vesey, leader of a foiled slave rebellion. Civil War
soldiers, including survivors of the 54th Mass.

More Photos can be found on our facebook page! Just look up Derelict Society under pages so you can get the full experience.

CHURCH OF THE RAVEN

CHURCH OF THE RAVEN

This neo Romanesque church was designed by a Ghent architect and has a basilica plan (high middle nave with lower side aisles). The nave has a remarkable flat, wooden panelled ceiling. Also typical of the (neo) Romanesque style is the choir that opens into an apse with a cul-de-four (vault in the shape of a half dome). The walls of the nave rest on arcades alternately resting on strong pillars and columns with capitals. The tower is planted laterally against the western facade. The green sandstone of Dolhain emphasizes the sobriety and Roman character of this sanctuary, built between 1906 and 1907.

On a Sunday morning in August 2015, the fire brigade had to rush out because the entire bell tower was on fire. The fire turned out to have been caused by copper thieves, who were stealing the copper in the wiring of the tower. The church had been empty for a few years at that time. Due to the inaccessibility of the tower, it took several hours for the fire brigade to master the flames. The damage was considerable. Since the church does not have a protected character, it seems almost inevitable that it will be completely demolished in the near future…
