"In response to the Influenza pandemic of 1918, Charleston’s Board of Health banned assemblies of more than five people and ordered all stores to close by sundown. The Citadel was also closed on September 30. Fortunately, by the middle of December, cases of influenza were quickly disappearing, and mortality rates fell back to normal by the beginning of 1919."

September 20, 1922: The Citadel moved from its original location on Marion Square in downtown Charleston to it 100-acre new campus on the Ashley River adjacent to Hampton Park.

"Work on the new campus took about two years. The southern end of the Rhett Farm was cleared thoroughly enough that the campus was easily visible from the neighboring Hampton Park Terrace, and a hospital, quarters and an administration building were soon started. A row of sycamores was retained that had been planted as part of the park construction. The cadets moved on September 20, 1922, to begin the school year in the new home on the Ashley River." ~from A History of Charleston's Hampton Park by Kevin R. Eberle
