Manning, established in 1855 as the seat of Clarendon District, was incorporated in 1861, its town limits extending 1/2 mile from the courthouse in all directions. In 1865, Union troops under General Edward E. Potter partially burned the town. About two blocks N. of here on Church S1. is the grave of Pv1. Josiah B. Pratt, one of Potter´s soldiers, who was killed in this foray only a few days before Lee´s surrender at Appomattox.
