SOUTH CAROLINA Map
One more US State map (the 19th I receive - slowly, slowly, I'm getting there!), this time from 'The Palmetto State', South Carolina (I confess I had to Google "palmetto", I didn't knew what it was!). Thank you very much Sarah, for the card, your message and the awesome 'Barnum & Bailey Circus' stamps. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
South Carolina is a state in the Southeastern United States. It is bordered to the north by North Carolina; to the south and west by Georgia, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Originally part of the The Province of South Carolina became a slave society after rice and indigo became established as commodity crops, and from 1708, a majority of the population were slaves, many born in Africa. It was the first of the 13 colonies that declared independence from the British Crown during the American Revolution. South Carolina comprises 46 counties. The capital and largest city of the state is Columbia.
