South Carolina – state in the Southeastern United States on the Atlantic coast.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ In Texas vs. White (1869), the Supreme Court ruled that the ordinances of secession (including that of South Carolina) were invalid, and thus those states had never left the Union. However, South Carolina did not regain representation in Congress until that date.
