Shipping from the State of Alabama to South Carolina
On December 14, 1819, Alabama became the 22nd state in the United States. A lot has changed since its statehood two hundred years ago. To date, Alabama is the 30th largest by area and the 24th most populous of the U.S. states.
Alabama is nicknamed the Yellowhammer State, after the state bird the Yellowhammer Woodpecker (Northern Flicker). It is also well-known as the “Heart of Dixie” and the “Cotton State”. The state tree is the longleaf pine and the state flower is the camellia. The state motto is ‘We Dare Defend Our Rights’ (Latin: Audemus jura nostra defendere).
Located in the southeastern region of the United States, Alabama is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west with Montgomery as the capital. Birmingham is the largest city by population whereas Huntsville is the largest city by land area. Founded by French colonists in 1702 as the capital of French Louisiana, Mobile is the oldest city in Alabama.
Shipping to the State of Alabama to South Carolina
Settled by the English in 1670, South Carolina became the eighth state to ratify the U.S. constitution in 1788. Its early economy was largely agricultural, benefitting from the area’s fertile soil, and plantation farmers relied on the slave trade for cheap labor to maximize their profits. By 1730, people of African descent made up two-thirds of the colony population. South Carolina became the first state to secede from the union in 1861 and was the site of the first shots of the Civil War–the shelling of the federally held Fort Sumter by Confederate troops on April 12, 1861.
Today, the South Carolina coastline near Myrtle Beach has developed into one of the premier resort destinations on the East Coast and has over 100 golf courses. Famous South Carolinians include musicians James Brown, Chubby Checker, and Dizzy Gillespie, novelist Pat Conroy, boxer Joe Frazier, tennis champion Althea Gibson, politician Jesse Jackson and long-serving U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond.
