At the arrival of the first Europeans, the current North Carolina and North
Carolina regions were populated by Indian tribes (Cusabos, Catawbas, Yamasees
and Cherokees). It is discovered, in 1512, by the Spanish Pedra-pomes León. The
Spaniards established a temporary camp near present-day Georgetown in 1526.
1562, French Huguenots tried helplessly to found a colony on the island of
Parris. The region was then explored by the English Hon. Sir Walter Raleigh,
between 1584 and 1587. In August 1585, a first colony was established on Roanoke
Island (Caroline of the North), but was abandoned a year later. A second attempt
took place in 1587 with a group of 121 English settlers, without success. In
1629, the territory located to the south Virginia is called Caroline in the
honor of Charles I of ER of England, who grants it to the Hon. Mr. Robert
Heath. Upon expiration of the concession in 1663, Charles II granted the
Carolina territory to eight owners who melt from private
establishments. Charlestown, the first permanent English colony, was created in
1670. The English philosopher John Locke wrote, in 1670, a Constitution that
provides for the creation of four parliamentary chambers and three orders of
nobility. Never applied, it was abandoned in 1693.
In 1728, Carolina became the property of the Crown. In 1730, South Carolina
separated from North Carolina. It took an active part in the War of
Independence, driving the British away from Fort Moultrie in 1776, but losing
Charleston to the profit of General Henry Clinton's army in 1780. North Carolina
became the eighth of the thirteen founding states of the Union, on May 23 1788.
In 1790, the capital is transferred from Charleston to Columbia.
At the beginning of the 19th century, plantation agriculture, founded on a
dominated labor force, continues its development. The State defends slavery and
opposes any interference by federal power. Senator John C. Calhoun becomes
champion of the defense of the freedoms and interests of the Southern States.
South Carolina is the first state to make sécession on December 20, 1860.
Fort Sumter's attack on Charleston Harbor, April 12, 1861 unleashes the
Sécession war, which causes much serious damage. Union forces, under the command
of General William T. Sherman, invaded Caroline of the South in 1865, burning
Columbia and leaving them behind a devastated state. Southeast Carolina replied
to the Union in 1868. The period of reconstruction is difficult, marked by
disorder and corruption. It ends with the withdrawal of federal gangs in 1877.
South Carolina, in the image of other southern states, such as Mississippi and
Georgia, is strongly opposed to the movement of Pretos in favor of civil rights
in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1955-1956, the Legislative Assembly enacted even a
series of discriminatory measures.
