The Citadel is located in historic Charleston, SC, and is a military college that combines academics, physical challenges, and military discipline. Cadets from The Citadel served the nation in various combats including the Mexican-American War, the Civil War, World War I, and World War II.

The buildings depicted are Bond Hall, the Padgett Thomas Barracks, Thomas Dry Howie Memorial Carillon and Tower, and Summerall Chapel. The Padgett Thomas Barracks, with its Checkerboard Quadrangle, was built in 1922. It was demolished in 2001 and rebuilt as an exact replica. Bond Hall is the main academic and administrative building on campus. The carillon is a set of fifty-nine bells, weighing 30,300 pounds, and serves as a memorial to Thomas Dry Howie who was a Citadel graduate killed in World War II. Styled in 14th Century Gothic architecture, Summerall Chapel stands as a shrine of religion, patriotism, and remembrance.

The Citadel students take great pride in their school while building lasting memories. That makes this a unique gift for recent graduates, past alumni, and fans of all ages. Relive the memories!

Your school’s artwork was created by hand using pen, ink, and watercolor. The paper is hand cut and layered to give the work a creative three-dimensional appeal. The image is 3.5” x 12.5” and is framed with a blue/white mat in a 9” x 18” quality, black metal frame.
