The Colony of Plantations and Wealth
Founders and Reasons Founded
South Carolina was founded when King Charles ll gave the land to eight nobles know as the The Lords Proprietors. The Lords Proprietors helped and supported King Charles ll. So, we have a royal charter and a great colony and we make it the best it can be.
The Lords Proprietors were given the land for helping and supporting King Charles ll. We are valued for its agriculture and settled by planters from West Indies who brought the plantation system. Settlers would sell what they produced and trade for what they needed only through businesses owned by the Lords.

Climate and Geography
Do you ever get tired of the cold, wet weather of Europe? Well in South Carolina the weather is warm and sunny almost all year round! Unlike the northern colonies, we don’t have those harsh, bitter, cold winters. South Carolina is literally the land of opportunity and with its rich soil and warm, sunny climate, it's ideal for plantations. South Carolina is on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, so if farming isn't your thing then you can fish in the infinite ocean of fish! We also have abundant forests, so if farming and/or fishing isn't for your ideal lifestyle, then you could easily use the lumber for house, furniture, tools and other necessities! Our inlands filled with gorgeous rolling hills, forested mountains and flowing rivers. Our coastline is also gorgeous with sunny beaches and an amazing ocean to watch our gorgeous sunsets!

The People of South Carolina
Many people have made our colony stand out the most out of the 13 colonies! One of these people include Elizabeth Lucas Pinckney. She assumed the management of her fathers 3 plantations. She started making blue indigo dye that was in great demand in England. She encouraged other planters to follow. Within 2 years indigo ranked second only to rice as a South Carolina export crop. Some of the civilians living in this perfect colony include Spanish explorers. They were the first Europeans to explore the costal regions. The English claim to the area arrived with the 1497 voyage of John Cabot (in the image above). Since then we are the best colony there is!

South Carolina is best place in the New World to practice any religion, because you won't be prosecuted for being anything other than yourself. The Dawn of Religious Freedom in South Carolina contains eight essays by historians and legal scholars that trace the quest for religious equality by Protestant dissenters, Huguenots, Jews, Quakers, Afro-Carolinians, and Roman Catholics. South Carolina was a beacon of religious freedom when compared to many other North American colonies, so come to South Carolina for the best experience today.
