A New Nation and State
The Constitutional Convention was a gathering of state delegates to rewrite the Articles of Confederation and create the Constitution. Nine of the Thirteen colonies were needed to ratify the Constitution in order for the Constitution to be in effect. The nation began to divide into two parties, those for the Constitution and those opposed. South Carolina was the ninth state to ratify the Constitution but it is stated by Historian George Roberts - “Charleston and the surrounding parishes were represented at Philadelphia, South Carolina was not.” This is because South Carolina had tensions between the Upcountry and the Low country. The delegates chosen to represent South Carolina were mostly from the Lowcountry and perhaps did not have equal representation of the entire state.
