Published just two years before the American Revolution broke out, this depiction of what would become South Carolina is highly detailed and would have been a valued resource at the time. By illustrating not just the towns and counties, but also topographical information, this map serves as a real link to the past and an authentic piece of cartographical history.
This era in South Carolina, and the other twelve colonies, saw tensions rising against colonial rule by Great Britain, and the Boston Tea Party occurred in the same year this map was produced. Charlestown, the oldest and most populated city in South Carolina, was a valuable port and the busiest hub of Atlantic trade between the colonies and England. In addition, the huge amount of business that occurred in Charlestown made it the most prosperous city in North America at this time. Tobacco exports flourished, and the state developed widespread rice cultivation in its marshy lowlands.
South Carolina’s rich history goes back to the first settlers of the land who found fertile ground for farming as well as valuable marine life and the ability to establish deepwater ports. Five years after the publication of this map South Carolina would be the first state to ratify the Articles of Confederation and would go on to become the eighth state to join the fledgling nation.
During the American Revolution, the state saw nearly a third of all conflicts on its land, more than any other state, as residents endured invasion by the English.
