A Brief History of South Carolina
- Originally a part of North Carolina, South Carolina became its own official colony in the early 18th century. According to some reports it was the first state to declare independence from Great Britain, though some other sources point to either Rhode Island or Vermont being the first. Regardless of that, however, South Carolina was the first state to secede from the U.S. in late 1860, prior to the outbreak of the U.S. Civil War. It was also on the receiving end of Sherman’s March to the Sea which devastated the southern states for decades following the war, with South Carolina receiving most of the brunt of it. This led to a depression that lasted decades and a permanent resentment in the hearts of many a South Carolinian. However, today the state is growing in population and popularity, and many of the stigmas left behind from the war are slowly fading away.

What to Expect when Shipping to or from South Carolina
- Transporting a vehicle to South Carolina is perhaps easiest from the northeast, especially during the fall and winter months when more carriers are running routes along I-95. That particular interstate runs through the eastern and northeastern stretches of the state and while it is a popular auto transport route it is not that popular unless you’re going through it, as I-95 only links with I-26 in the state, which runs to Columbia. Columbia is one of the largest cities in the state, of course, and there are interstates within the city that make it easier for carriers to move about the region as well. Typically shipping to or from cities like Columbia or Charleston or Greenville (of which all three sit along I-26, which helps keep prices lower) will be cheaper than shipping to somewhere off the beaten path.
