South Carolina was governed by William Sayle, though King Charles ll basically owned it. It was only one colony but it split into two not long after it was founded. It was founded in 1788.
South Carolina was a very rich colony. Most people relied on slaves to do things. The South Carolina colony is apart of the southern colonies who had the most slaves. The slaves would usually do all of the work.
This was a good place to settle because of the good soil and slaves did most of the work. They also had huge plantations and the families owned more than one slave.
