SOUTHCAROLINA, one of the South Atlantic states of the U.S., bordered on the N by NorthCarolina, on the E and SE by the Atlantic Ocean, and on the SW and W by Georgia.
The recorded temperature in SouthCarolina has ranged from –28.9° C (–20° F), in 1977 at Caesars Head in the NW, to 43.9° C (111° F), in 1925 at Blackville and Calhoun Falls in the W and in 1954 at Camden in the central part of the state.
SouthCarolina was the first state to secede from the Union (Dec. 20, 1860), and the attack on Fort Sumter, in Charleston Harbor, on April 12, 1861, marked the beginning of the American Civil War.
