South Carolina after Independence

On January 9, 1861, cadets from the Citadel, the South Carolina military college, fired on the steamer Star of the West, hired by the US government to transport military supplies and reinforcements to the besieged garrison of the fort. Although none of the people were injured and the ship, despite three hits, was not seriously damaged, its captain refused to continue the mission and returned to New York. Three months later, on April 12, 1861, Confederate gunners began a thirty-four-hour bombardment of Fort Sumter. Although not a single defender of the fort suffered from shelling, it was pointless to continue defending it, and on April 13 the garrison raised a white flag and surrendered on honorable terms. During a cannon salute given by the Confederates in honor of the brave defenders of Fort Sumter, one of the cannons exploded, killing one of the Union soldiers – it was the first casualty of the American Civil War.

During the war years, the state played a very important role in providing the Confederate army with trained military personnel (mainly Citadel graduates), as well as food, military uniforms and other materials. Only a few battles took place on the territory of South Carolina (mostly on the coast), the state remained almost completely under the control of the southerners. Only shortly before the end of the war, in February 1865, Union units led by General William Sherman passed through the Palm State, destroying everything in their path. On February 17, Sherman captured the capital of South Carolina, Columbia, on the same day, fires broke out in the city, almost completely destroying its central part. On February 21, 1865, the northern army entered Charleston, where the war had begun four years earlier.

South Carolina suffered greatly from the Civil War, thousands of its residents died in battles, many cities and plantations were destroyed. Despite the fact that after the victory of the northerners in the United States, slavery was legally prohibited, for many more decades black residents of South Carolina were actually significantly infringed in their rights. Numerous members of the Ku Klux Klan terrorized and killed former slaves in the state in the late sixties and early seventies of the 19th century, later their place was taken by members of the paramilitary racist groups known as the “Red Shirts”. In addition, South Carolina legislators have passed a number of laws that make it difficult for poorly educated and poor blacks to participate in elections. Discrimination continued almost until the sixties of the XX century.
