Shipping from the State of South Carolina to Arizona
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.
Shipping to the State of South Carolina to Arizona
Arizona was originally part of New Mexico; however, the land was yielded to the United States in 1848 and became a separate territory in 1863. On February 14, 1912, Arizona became the last of the 48 contiguous United States to be admitted to the union.
Arizona is located in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states. Arizona is the 6th largest and the 14th most populous of the 50 states. Arizona shares the Four Corners region with Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico; its other neighboring states are Nevada and California to the west and the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California to the south and southwest. Both the capital city and the largest city is Phoenix.
Arizona is nicknamed “The Grand Canyon State”. It is also well-known as “The Copper State” and “The Valentine State”. The state tree is the Palo Verde, the state bird is the Cactus Wren and the state flower is the Saguaro Cactus Blossom. The state motto is “God Enriches” (Latin: Ditat Deus).
