Abstract:
Episcopal minister David D. Van Antwerp organized Beaufort's Parish of St. Paul's in the mid-1850s and shortly thereafter began missionary efforts to local Afro-Americans. He met with opposition, but continued his work, as did subsequent pastors. In 1887, St. Clement's Colored Episcopal Church was built. The church continued until 1967, when it united with the congregation at St. Paul's.

Schools and churches closed, as did the local movie theater. Most victims survived through the heroic efforts of nurses, doctors, including Duncan, Lofton, Siske, Swindell, and Royal, and community volunteers.
