South Carolina History

South Carolina has a lot of fascinating history and geography. I am a transplant, but have raised my children here for 24 years and have learned much, which I now impart to my third graders.

Are you a Palmetto citizen? How much do you know about your state? Are you now far away and longing to see "those white sandy beaches and Carolina peaches?" Try your luck and see how much you truly know about the Palmetto State's history.
