South Carolina is a state in the Deep South that borders Georgia to the south and North Carolina to the north.

According to the 2010 United States Census, the state's population is 4,625,384 and ranked 24th among the U.S. states.
On December 20, 1860, when it became clear that Lincoln would be the next president, South Carolina became the first state to declare its secession from the Union. On April 12, 1861, Confederate batteries began shelling Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, and the American Civil War began. The Union Navy effectively blockaded Charleston and seized the Sea Islands.
