South Carolina : an illustrated history of the Palmetto state by Ernest M Lander( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South Carolina's first constitution, as a colony, was framed with the help of eminent philosopher John Locke. Along with an elaborately constructed system seeking a "balance of government," the Fundamental Constitutions contained several shrewd promotional devices to attract settlers, including cheap land and religious tolerance. Blessed with such a birthright, South Carolina has produced statesmen and populist leaders alike. Of course, the heritage of individualism she steadfastly upholds has nurtured not only her political climate, but her cultural and economic life as well. South Carolina: An Illustrated History of the Palmetto State skillfully captures in one volume the richness of the state's historical atmosphere. Not only do we relive her stirring past; we are also brought up-to-date on the opportunities she now provides. The authors pilot the course of the Palmetto State's history with assured hands and clear eyes. From languourous sub-tropical islands to lushly forested mountains, the landscape is enlivened with memorable people and events. A special chapter, "Chronicles of Leadership," highlights the successes of some of the state's corporations and organizations that have resourcefully invested in her future. Gracing the text are over 300 portraits, maps, drawings, and photos which reveal South Carolina's substantial presence on the nation's historical scene. These illustrations, in both vintage black and white and vibrant color, represent the full range of her spirited development. Finally, an illustrated chronology of significant events in South Carolina history puts it all in perspective. A volume to delight and inform, South Carolina: An Illustrated History of the Palmetto State graciously welcomes you into the borders of this resplendent state with a hospitality as genuine as her own. - Jacket flap

The Shaftesbury Papers by Anthony Ashley Cooper Shaftesbury( Book )

This collection "is composed largely of the papers of Anthony Ashley Cooper, first Earl of Shaftesbury and foremost of the proprietors responsible for the colony's founding.

The life of Francis Marion by William Gilmore Simms( Book )

10 editions published between 1844 and 1860 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The facts, in the life of Francis Marion, are far less generally extended in our country than his fame. The present is an attempt to supply this deficiency, and to justify, by the array of authentic particulars, the high position which has been assigned him among the master-workers in our revolutionary history. The task has been a difficult, but I trust not entirely an unsuccessful one. Our southern chronicles are meagre and unsatisfactory
