Civil War re-enactors to observe 150th anniversary of Darien’s burning

Special to SEGAZINE

McIntosh County Historic Preservation Board member Missy Brandt will don period clothing as she portrays Annie Shaw on Saturday in a 150th anniversary commemoration of the burning of Darien.

Annie Shaw was the wife of Robert Gould Shaw, the Union Army colonel who reluctantly burned the coastal town on June 11, 1863.

He was well south of Pennsylvania where the decisive battle of the Civil War was about to take place at Gettysburg.
