Cheraw was the home of John Inglis, who introduced the resolution that South Carolina secede from the Union. This 18th century river town became a place of refuge and a storehouse of valuables, including an official repository of Confederate gold. In March 1865, Gen. William T. Sherman visited Cheraw with more Union troops than occupied any other South Carolina city. They found it "a pleasant town and an old one with the southern aristocratic bearing." Of particular interest are St. David's Church (ca. 1770), used as a hospital during the Civil War; the cemetery with the earliest known Confederate monument (1867); and the Cheraw Lyceum Museum.
