South Carolina is a state unto itself – and we mean that both figuratively and literally, of course. South Carolina has always been about independence; it was the only U.S. state to try to secede twice. It was named after King Charles II of England, which makes sense because North Carolina was as well. It was one of the 13 original colonies and was also the first state to secede from the Union in December of 1860 prior to the start of the American Civil War. It borders North Carolina, Georgia, and the Atlantic Ocean.
South Carolina has four distinct geographical regions that make it quite an interesting state: the Coastal Plain, which (you guessed it) lies on the Atlantic coast; the Low Country, which lies west of the Plain; the Sand Hills Region, which is full of sand dunes (great for going out in dune buggies though); the Piedmont Region, which it shares with North Carolina; and Upstate, which is where many of the mountains lie.
During the summer months the average highs in the city typically reach into the low 80’s during the day with lows typically dropping into the low-to-mid 60’s overnight. The reason for the cooler weather than most states in the Southern United States is because of its location on the Eastern Seaboard as well as the Appalachian Mountains, which run along the western side of the state. These force the city into a mellow subtropical climate, which allows for not-too-hot summers and cold winters. For instance, average highs across the state in the winter months only hit into the low-to-mid 50’s; overnight lows often drop to around the freezing point, resulting in snow in the western parts of the state.
South Carolina has really had a checkered past when it comes to staying in the Union. On December 20th, 1860, the state government passed a resolution of secession which officially claimed that South Carolina was its own independent territory. Soon afterwards it joined other states which had seceded, and together they formed the Confederate States of America, which was basically a Southern version of the United States (the only real difference was that the president was limited to one six year term with no option to run again). South Carolina was almost completely destroyed by William Sherman, who took personal vengeance on the state for being the first to destroy the Union by seceding. After that, South Carolina was the last state to opt to rejoin the Union after losing the Civil War.
