booming Greenville, which is an excellent starting point for outdoor activities.
South Carolina's exciting story
South Carolina is one of the first 13 states in the United States and has a
long history that does not begin with the history of conquest and settlement by
the Europeans. The 'Native American Indians' had lived here for thousands of
years. Tribes resident in the South Carolina area include the Bear River
Indians, the Catawba, Cherokee, the Natchez and the Waccamaw, and many others.
Not only did the horses come into the state with the Europeans, but also a
series of territorial conflicts. The history of European conquest began in 1540
with a Spanish expedition. South Carolina became a colony of the English crown
From the first settlers to the civil war

Yamasee War 1715-17, the English pushed the Native Americans far back. In the
second half of the 18th century, South Carolina played a leading role in the
struggle for independence from the British crown. The battle was fought bloody
in 1780-81. The state's prosperity was based on the work of African slaves on
the rice, cotton and indigo plantations. The end of slavery only came with the
U.S. Civil War, which began with a Confederate attack on Fort Sumter in
