The territory is mostly flat, or barely moved by modest hills, except in the
north-western section, affected by the Blue Ridge chain, which here culminates
at 1085 m in Mount Sassafras. The coast, which stretches for 301 km from Long
Bay to the mouth of the Savannah River, is low, jagged and often swampy. The
hydrographic network is dense and the water courses descend to the Atlantic with
NW-SE direction: the main ones are the Pee Dee, the Santee, the Edisto and the
Savannah, which marks the border with Georgia. Numerous lakes, mostly artificial
(Murray, Marion, Moultrie, Wateree). The climate is warm temperate, but in the
southern part it assumes subtropical characteristics. Rainfall is more frequent
in mountainous regions and near the coast. No center reaches 100,000
inhabitants: in addition to the capital, Columbia, we
remember Charleston, Greenville, Spartanburg and Rock Hill. The main economic
resource is represented by agriculture: tobacco, cereals, peanuts and fruit are
produced; the cotton harvest is good, despite the fact that this crop has
experienced a certain regression throughout the SE due to diseases and
pests. Cattle breeding (cattle, pigs, poultry), fishing and forest exploitation
follow. Among the industries, the main ones are the textile, clothing and
chemical industries. Mineral resources are scarce, while a significant
contribution to the formation of income comes from tourism.
Visited by the Spaniards in the century. XVI, the first stable settlement of
English colonists dates back to 1670. Although South
and North Carolina theoretically formed only one colony, in practice their
governments were always separate. The colonial period was characterized by the
struggles against the proprietary lords and the crown, which took over from the
first in 1719. South Carolina participated in the war of independence and
ratified the Constitution in 1788. It supported a bitter controversy with the
federal government over the issue of tariffs customs and then for slavery in the
period immediately preceding the civil war; he was then the first state to
proclaim secession. Destroyed by federal troops during the civil war, it was
readmitted to the Union in 1868. During the Reconstruction, it was ruled by
corrupt and authoritarian administrations. Returning to normal (1877), it was
dominated by the Democratic Party, both for historical reasons and because it is
recognized as the only one capable of defending white supremacy. The rules
introduced in 1895 to limit black voting rights expired in 1965.
