The Museum at Market Hall, located upstairs in the historic Charleston City Market, houses many Confederate soldiers’ war-time possessions donated at the end of the War, including uniforms, flags, swords, diaries, and cannons. In 1894, the Charleston Chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy was founded. The group began collecting artifacts from the war. Five years later, the United Confederate Veterans reunion was held in Charleston.
Meeting Street and Market Hall, designed by Charleston architect Edward B. White, was added in the early 1840s. Throughout the 19th century, the market provided a convenient place for area farms and plantations to sell beef and produce, and also acted as a place for locals to gather and socialize.
