Looking to become a part of a unique and irreplaceable piece of US history? Look no further than in The Lowcountry of Beaufort County, SC. The historic Oaks Plantation was built in 1854, and is situated on 2.27 acres on Chowan Creek Bluff. Less than a 10 minute drive to Historic Downtown Beaufort, this stately home has many period details including original fireplace mantels, Heart Pine flooring and charming wrap around front and back porches. The property was part of, and subject to, US Army Maj. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman's 1865 Special Field Order No. 15, whereby freedmen were granted the right to establish ''a peaceable agricultural settlement'' of up to 40 acres in the 400,000 acres of a strip of land 30 miles inland from the coast, stretching from Charleston to the St. Johns river
