South Carolina weather

Climate:┬áIn simple terms, South Carolina’s weather is hot and humid in summer with short, mild winters.

The prevailing weather conditions here are also the result of the low elevations, consistently warm waters of the Gulf Stream and the Appalachians, which in winter help block cold air from entering the state’s interior.

Gullah/Geechee CHC

Descendants of African slaves who were brought to the United States of America at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries are referred to as Gullah or GeeChee . They were members of various tribes who were brought mostly from West Africa to work in the city of Charleston. Due to tribal differences, these slaves could not communicate with each other, so they developed their own language, which was a kind of combination of English, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and the languages of African tribes.

The term gullah apparently comes from the Gola or Gora tribes, which in the past inhabited the territory of present-day Liberia. Today, this Neo-Olyzed English is used by the black population living on the coast from South Carolina to Florida. This culture, together with the language, has the largest representation on the chain of American islands, the Sea Islands. These islands were once dotted with rice and cotton plantations, but today they are home to about 150,000 African Americans.

These people managed to preserve their specific language, religion, culture, traditions, crafts and music to this day. The members of the community kept everything that their ancestors brought from Africa in their memory and daily life.

Charles Pinckney National Historic Site

Charles Pinckney was born on October 26, 1757 in Charleston, South Carolina. He represented the state, was the chairman of the Constitutional Assembly and a great fighter for human rights. He had great political and legal talent, which he wanted to use to create a strong government. Charles Pinckney was a co-author of the US Constitution and also one of the candidates for President of the United States of America.

In 1796, he ran against his younger brother Thomas in the US presidential election. Both received a large number of electoral votes, but it was not enough for John Adams, who eventually became the newly elected president. It was the only time in the history of the United States that two brothers faced each other in the presidential election.

The site where Charles Pinckney spent his childhood and youth has been designated a National Historic Site. The Charles Pinckney House is a classically beautiful Southern mansion surrounded by towering magnolias and oak trees.
