Shipping from the State of South Carolina to Georgia
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 Georgia
The youngest of the 13 former English colonies, Georgia was founded in 1732 and included in the union on January 2, 1788, as the fourth state. By the mid-19th century, Georgia had the greatest number of plantations of any state in the South, and in many aspects, it emerged as a breeding house of plantation culture in the country.
Located in the southeastern region of the United States, Georgia is bordered by Tennessee to the north, South Carolina to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Alabama to the west with Atlanta as the capital. Atlanta is the largest city and it is called by the nickname of Peach State.
It is also well-known as the “Empire State of the South”. The state tree is the Live Oak and Cherokee rose is considered the state flower. ‘Wisdom, Justice and Moderation’- is the state motto.
