This Day in History: May 23, 1788

South Carolina, “The Palmetto State”

South Carolina was the first state to ratify the Articles of Confederation, and the 8th state to ratify the US Constitution on May 23, 1788. South Carolina later became the first state to vote to secede from the Union which it did on December 20, 1860. It was readmitted to the United States on June 25, 1868. The state motto of South Carolina “Dum Spiro Spero” means ‘While I breathe, I hope.”
