history
Although South Carolina is the 11th smallest state, its land is incredibly diverse. You can find sandy beaches, flat grasslands, rolling hills, mountain peaks, and swamps. About two-thirds of the land is forested, and South Carolina has more swampland than any other state except Louisiana. The state’s elevation slopes downward from west to east, starting with a tiny section of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west. Likewise, rivers flow from west to east until they reach the Atlantic Ocean. The hilly Piedmont Plateau, called upcountry by natives, comes next and occupies about one-third of the land. The rest of the land, called lowcountry, is part of the flat Atlantic Coastal Plain. Along the coast are beautiful beaches, which are popular with the tourists. The animals that live in the state are just as diverse as the land. Deer, bobcats, and beavers live in forested areas, and snakes, alligators, and turtles make their homes in the swamps or along the coast.

It's vacatoin time!!
In 1670, Charles Town was founded. Ten years later, the community picked up and moved across the river to better ground. Charles Town grew to be a busy port town, and the people prospered. Although South Carolina initially tried to maintain ties with England, the colonists grew increasingly discontent with British rule. In 1776, the British army fired on Charles Town, so the citizens were forced to fight back. During the Revolutionary War, the British eventually took Charles Town and most of South Carolina. By the end of the war, the citizens pushed the troops out and became the eighth state to ratify (approve) the Constitution.
