The house on Legare Street where you can find these beautiful flower boxes was built around 1835. In the 1890’s, it was rented byt Capt. Thomas Pinckney. Pinckney was best known for being one of the “Immortal Six Hundred,” who were Confederate officers that were captured and help prisoner during the Civil War. They were intentionally starved and 46 died as a result. They were “immortalized” because they refused to take an oath of allegiance to the United States, despite being put under such duress.
