Places in South Carolina History
Posted by Mark Woodard
Depending upon where you are, in South Carolina, has a
bearing on your history. If you live in the coastal zone
region, you would hear about pirates, shipping, and the ocean.
If you lived in the coastal plain region you would understand
about swamps and oval depressions called bays. The coastal
plain region covers about 20,000 square miles going up to the
sand hills. The sand hills stretches across the state and
is where the water fall line is. Then we come to the
piedmont region. Piedmont means foothills of the
mountains. The piedmont region covers about one third of
the state and is great for growing crops. Then we come to
the smallest region in our state, the Blue Ridge region.
This area covers about six hundred square miles. Depending
upon the area would make up your history was. Some history
covers the entire state or different regions. It's what
makes our history varied and exciting.
