Originally part of the Province of Carolina, the Province of South Carolina was one of the 13 colonies that declared independence from the British Crown during the American Revolution.

According to the 2010 United States Census, the state's population is 4,625,384 and ranked 24th among the U.S. states. South Carolina contains 46 counties and its capital is Columbia.
