|Susan, it wasn't really a matter of storing arms in the church. During the Rev. War a Torie, DeVoux who was with Prevost on his first invasion of SC had his men burn the church, which many were members of, as a sign of loyalty.
The second time was on the Sherman march, the union troops fired the church. There were no arms found at either time, although crypts were broken into looking for arms. I have never seen any credible evidence arms were ever stored there, although it is a good story.
