A few interesting facts about South Carolina:

  2. The salamander was given the honor of official state amphibian.
  3. The walls of the American fort on Sullivan Island, in Charleston Harbor, were made of spongy Palmetto logs. This was helpful in protecting the fort because the British cannonballs bounced off the logs.

  7. The state dance of South Carolina is the Shag!
  8. The first battle of the Civil War took place at Fort Sumter.
