The Carolinas is a collective term used in the United States to refer to the states of North and South Carolina together. The Carolinas were once known (during America's colonial period) as the Province of Carolina.


This province, named Carolina after King Charles I of England, was divided in 1710 into South Carolina and North Carolina.

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: North Carolina (3228 words)
It is bounded on the north by Virginia, east and south-east by the Atlantic Ocean, south by South Carolina and Georgia, and west and north-west by Tennessee.
The climate is generally equable, and North Carolina produces nearly all the crops grown in the United States with the exception of sub-tropical cane and fruits.
This grant was enlarged in 1665 both as to territory and jurisdiction, and in 1669 the lords proprietors promulgated the "Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina", framed by John Locke, the philosopher, but they proved too theoretical for practical operation.
