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 thearea’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’s population. South Carolinabecame the first state to secede from the union in 1861, and was the site of the first shots of the Civil War–the shellingof the federally held Fort Sumter by Confederate troops on April 12, 1861. 

Today, South Carolina coastline near Myrtle Beach has developed into one of the premiere resort destinations on the East Coast, and has over 100 golf courses. 
Palmetto State
South Carolina became the eighth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution, on May 23, 1788.
The palmetto tree has been an important icon of South Carolina since the American Revolutionary War.

When the British attacked a fort on Sullivan’s Island, near Charleston, the cannonballs bounced off the spongy palmetto logs used to build the exterior wall.
Charleston welcomed a shipment of golf balls and clubs from Scotland as early as 1743. On September 29, 1786, the South Carolina Golf Club was formed and, within the same year, America’s first golf course was established on Charleston Green.

The highway was named for General William C. Westmoreland, a South Carolina native and graduate of West Point. He is perhaps best known for being a commander of US forces during the Vietnam War. he was born in Spartanburg.
