Geocache Description:

The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. It is a well hidden magnetic container. Beware of fishing muggles and stay away from the dam water. Stealth is very important as the original cache has already been replaced by another that is more resistant to muggles and snow. Things are looking up.

For people like Joe, who were involved in cotton production, Beaufort was much more than just a variant. Prior to the Civil War, Beaufort was a center of culture and affluence in the American South. Immense fortunes were made through the cultivation of rice, indigo and, later, long-staple sea cotton. Wealthy plantation owners had summer homes in Beaufort where they could benefit from cool breezes coming off the river. The town was also a hotbed of secessionist sentiment. In 1860, the first meeting to draft the Ordinance of Secession (by which South Carolina led the withdrawal of southern states from the Union) was held in Beaufort.
