Charleston 1783-1786 | South Carolina
In 1783 the capital city was finally incorporated and became Charleston instead of Charles Towne and Charlestown. During this time Back and Upcountry South Carolinians became increasingly upset at all political power resting in the Lowcountry. Also Back and Upcountry farmers would have to travel to Charleston from all across the State to pay taxes and to have their voice heard.
To appease the political discontent, the State’s leaders decided to move the capital city to a central location in South Carolina. In 1786, the capital city moved from Charleston to the city of Columbia. This would be the last time that the capital would relocate in South Carolina.
