Shipping from the State of South Carolina to Wyoming
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 Wyoming
Wyoming was the 44th state to join the Union in 1890. It was also the first U.S. state to allow women to vote. This achievement represented one of the early victories of the American women’s suffrage movement. Today, although it is the 10th largest state by area, Wyoming has the smallest populace of all the states, with a little over 550,000 residents. The state is home to most of Yellowstone National Park, one of the most reputable national parks in the country.
On a yearly basis, millions of tourists visit Wyoming to see the geyser Old Faithful and the Grand Prismatic Spring and a variety of wildlife including moose, elk, bighorn sheep, wolves, coyotes, eagles, black bears, and grizzly bears. The Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest hot spring in the United States.
