what type of people are living in this colonly
Since farming was unsuccessful in South Carolina, settlers had to find a new way to make a living. They began to capture Native Americans and sell them as slaves to people in other colonies and in the West Indian islands. By 1700, the colonists discovered that rice and indigo grew very well in this land. These two goods prospered, making the farmers very wealthy. Large plantations became widespread throughout the area, and black slaves from Africa became the primary source of labor.
all religious groups in South Carolina were able to freely practice their faith. The three main religions were Anglicans, dissenters from the Church of England, called nonconformists, and French Huguenots.
