Shipping from the State of Utah to South Carolina
Mountains, high plateaus, and wilderness form most of Utah’s countryside. At Four Corners, in the southeast, Utah gets together Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona at right angles, the only such meeting of states in the country. Utah became the 45th associate of the union on Jan. 4, 1896, with Salt Lake City as its capital.
Utah is acknowledged for having some of the best skiing in the country, and the mountains close to Salt Lake City receive an average of 500 inches of snow per year. Throughout the 19th century, many Mormons settled in Utah, and today approximately 60 percent of the state’s inhabitants are members of the church. The Sundance Film Festival, one of the premier independent film festivals in the world, is held each January in Park City.
Shipping to the State of Utah 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.
