Shipping from the State of South Carolina to Nebraska
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 Nebraska
On 1st March 1867, two years after the civil war ended, Nebraska became a part of the Union, making it the 37th state in the country. The state possesses a lot of lands suitable for farming and ranching activities. Before it became a state, Nebraska had a small population that later grew during the California Gold Rush in 1848. This increase in population came with a large wave of settlers arriving as homesteaders in the 1860s. Omaha was the state’s initial territorial capital of Nebraska, but the seat later moved to Lancaster. After Abraham Lincoln’s assassination in 1865, Lancaster was renamed Lincoln in his honour.
Nebraska shares boundaries with South Dakota to the North, Colorado to the South, Wyoming to the West and Iowa and Missouri to the East. It has the appellation Nicknamed “Cornhusker State,” and its motto is “Equality Before the Law.”
