If you’re just joining us, you can catch up here in our Across the USA in 31 Days series. Every day this month I will bring you a small sample of printables from my larger eBook, which will be released later this month. I hope you will join me this month as we travel from state to state across the USA.
Oh South Carolina, why do you taunt me? Now that we live in Indiana, we’re really not that far away from South Carolina and I do hope one day soon we can visit. I’ve heard great things about Hilton Head, especially. My children have never seen the ocean or a “real” beach, just the sandy one at our local lake. But South Carolina has always been a state I wanted to visit.
While you dream of warmer weather and beaches, download the South Carolina State Flag Coloring Pages. South Carolina has a deep, rich history in the United States. Before it became a state, the Province of South Carolina was a slave society when rice and indigo established a commodity crops. From 1708, most of the population were slaves, many of them born in Africa. South Carolina was the first state to ratify the Articles of Confederation and the 8th state to ratify the U.S. Constitution (May 23, 1788. South Carolina was also the first state to vote and successfully secede from the Union on December 20, 1860. However, after the American Civil War, it was readmitted into the United States on June 25, 1868. Read more about the state while the kids color these flag pages.
The state flag was designed by Col. William Moultrie for use by the South Carolina troops, when asked by the Revolutionary Council of Safety in the fall of 1775. Moultrie chose a blue background, which matched their uniform color and a crescent, representing the silver emblem on the front of their caps. The palmetto tree was added later to represent Moultrie’s heroic defense of the palmetto-log fort on Sullivan’s Island against the attack of the British fleet on June 28, 1776. The coloring pages are available in print for the pre-writers, dotted manuscript for early writers and dotted cursive for upper elementary.
