Colonial South Carolina, revised edition

A History

A standard source on one of the most enigmatic colonies in North America

In this modern and complete history, Robert Weir explicates the apparent paradoxes that defined colonial South Carolina. In doing so he offers provocative observations about its ascension to the pinnacle of mid-eighteenth-century prosperity, escalating racial tension, struggles for political control, and push toward revolution.
