Federal forces under General Stevens march triumphantly into the town of Beaufort on December 5, 1861. "Harper's Weekly" reported to its readers, "The beautiful rural town of Beaufort came into possession of the Union authorities as a result of the battle of Port Royal. The place had been abandoned by all the white inhabitants save one man who sat in the post office when the Union troops appeared on the scene. To him was delivered the message announcing that the life and property of the people would be respected."
