Overview

Did you know that the Spanish attempted to establish a colony in what is now South Carolina 40 years before the English founded Jamestown in Virginia? Or that the colony's name is derived from two European kings named Charles?

Step back into the early years of South Carolina when the Cherokee and the Catawba were the largest of 29 native groups; and when the colony was one of the few places where Jews and Quakers were welcome in the New World. Learn how the first indigo plants were grown by a 16–year–old girl; and meet such Revolutionary War heroes as Francis "Swamp Fox" Marion and Thomas "the Gamecock" Sumter.

Middle-school students will encounter Colonial America through fresh eyes in this comprehensive series. Archival photographs, period maps, and lively, first-person accounts from explorers, Native Americans, missionaries, slaves and indentured servants, farmers, government officials, and more are seamlessly woven together to create a vibrant and accurate portrait of life in 18 European colonies—not just British but French and Spanish, too.
