South Carolina

To those who know it well, South Carolina is so much more than just the 8th state to officially join the union. It’s also the location of Fort Sumter, which was site of the first battle of the Civil War. It’s the country’s leading peach provider, the state that claims the salamander as its state amphibian, and the location of the largest gingko farm in the entire world.

However, there’s only so much you can really say you know about South Carolina if you’ve gained most of your knowledge at trivia night or in American history class. Local interest literature can put you in touch with the true spirit of the Palmetto State.
