Details

In an engaging narrative style, South Carolina thoroughly examines life in the early colony, including such details as the Yamasee War, pirate attacks, slavery, and the effect of such crops as indigo and rice. An entire chapter focuses on the numerous American Indian tribes—mainly the Cherokee and Catawba—who lived throughout the colony, from the coast and lowlands up into the Appalachian Mountains. The highly engaging text covers South Carolina's role in the formation of the Constitution, along with its place as the eighth state to ratify it. Attention is also given to post-Revolution struggles such as the challenge of rebuilding South Carolina and deciding what to do about the remaining Loyalists.
