Marine Amphibious Assault

In April of 1864 the footprints in the sand before you would have included those of Union Marines. On April 23, embarking in longboats from the USS Ethan Allen, marine raiders landed without being engaged at Cane Patch (now Singleton Swash*) and destroyed a major Confederate salt works. The following day the raiders destroyed a smaller, undefended salt works at Withers Swash.
*Chiefly Southeastern US name for a channel of water through or behind a sandbank.
