South Carolina Highway 34
South Carolina Highway 34 is a primary state highway in the U. S. state of South Carolina. As one of the longer state highways, it traverses the state east-west from Greenwood to Dillon, connecting the cities of Newberry, Camden and Darlington. SC 34 begins as a hidden highway in downtown Greenwood, at the intersection of Main Street and Maxwell Avenue. On city and state official maps, SC 34 is on an east parallel to U. S. Route 25 Business and US 178 Bus. along Main Street with some sections being in concurrency. At the intersection of Main Street and Ninety Six Highway, the first signage of SC 34 appears, heading east to Ninety Six. SC 34 travels near the Ninety Six National Historic Site. Near Newberry, it takes a bypass route along Dixie Drive and Wilson Road, before continuing east to Winnsboro. Now going southeast, it goes through Ridgeway, to Lugoff, where it overlaps with US 1/US 601 to Camden. Continuing east and parallel to Interstate 20, SC 34 joins with US 15 at Bishopville and skirts north of Lee State Park.
East of Lydia, SC 34 goes directly to Darlington. Heading in a northeasterly direction now, it goes through Brownsville east into downtown Dillon, where it ends at the intersection of Main Street and Second Avenue. An original part of the South Carolina state route system, in 1922 the road ran from Darlington to Ridgeway. In 1933 the road was extended to Dillon and about 1943 a bridge over the Pee Dee river was opened. In the early 1950s the road was extended to Greenwood. SC 34 was bypassed south around Newberry in 1976 and the original route through the town remained as SC 34 Business; the first part of the road to be paved was the section though Camden in 1929. Over the next several years other parts were paved until the road was paved by the early 1940s. During the past several decades, much of the route has been widened to four lanes. SC 34 Business was established in 1976, following the old mainline route through downtown Newberry, via Boundary Street, Caldwell Street and Main Street. Sometime between 2006-2010 the route was decommissioned.

SC 34 Connector is an unsigned connector route southwest of downtown Newberry, it travels along Dixie Drive for 0.54 miles between Kendall Street and SC 34. SC 34 Connector is a 0.3-mile-long connector route southwest of downtown Darlington. The highway is named Lamar Highway and connects US 401 at its intersection with US 52 with SC 34. Though it is not signed with a typical auxiliary signage plate and SC 34 shield, green highway signs at both ends denote the road as the "34–401 Connector."

Columbus County, North Carolina
Columbus County is a county located in the U. S. state of North Carolina, on its southwestern border. As of the 2010 census, the population was 58,098, its county seat is Whiteville. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 954 square miles, of which 937 square miles is land and 16 square miles is water, it is the third-largest county in North Carolina by land area. There are several large lakes including Lake Tabor and Lake Waccamaw. One of the most significant geographic features is the Green Swamp, a 15,907-acre area in the north-eastern portion of the county. Highway 211 passes alongside it; the swamp contains several endangered species, such as the venus flytrap. The area contains the Brown Marsh Swamp, has a remnant of the giant longleaf pine forest that once stretched across the Southeast from Virginia to Texas; the county was formed in 1808 in the early federal period from parts of Bladen and Brunswick counties. It was named for Christopher Columbus; the Waccamaw Siouan Indians are one of eight state-recognized tribes.
Their homeland territory is at the edge of Green Swamp in present-day Columbus County. The "eastern Siouans" had territories extending through the area of Columbus County prior to any European exploration or settlement in the 16th century. English colonial settlement in what was known as Carolina did not increase until the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Following epidemics of infectious disease, the indigenous peoples suffered disruption and fatalities during the colonial Tuscarora and Yamasee wars. Afterward most of the Tuscarora people migrated north, joining other Iroquoian-speaking peoples of the Iroquois Confederacy in New York State by 1722, when they declared their migration ended and the tribe relocated to that area; the Waccamaw Siouan ancestors retreated for safety to an area of Green Swamp near Lake Waccamaw. Throughout the 19th century, the Waccamaw Siouan were mentioned in the historical record. Toward the end of the century, the U. S. Census recorded common Waccamaw surnames among individuals in the small isolated communities of this area.
In 1910, the earliest-known governmental body of the Waccamaw Indians was created, named the Council of Wide Awake Indians. At a time of racial segregation in North Carolina schools, Native American children were grouped with African American children as students; the Council sought to gain public funding for Indian schools, as the Lumbee had achieved in the late 19th century. They hoped to gain federal recognition as a tribe; this was rare for landless Indians. Federal recognition had been associated with the treaty making, related to land cessions and removal of Indians to reservations; the Council opened its first publicly funded school in 1933, founded others soon after. They continued to have difficulty in getting state funding for schools. Minorities had been disenfranchised in North Carolina since passage of a suffrage amendment in 1900 that created barriers to voter registration; the Council campaigned for federal recognition in 1940 during the President Franklin D. Roosevelt administration, believing it sympathetic to Native Americans.
It had passed the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, which encouraged tribes to re-establish self-government. The name Waccamaw Siouan was first used in US government documents in 1949, when a bill intended to grant the tribe federal recognition was introduced in Congress by the representative of this district; the bill was defeated in committee the following year. But changes in federal policy following Native American activism in the 1960s and 1970s enabled the Waccamaw Indians to obtain more public funding and economic assistance without federal recognition; the Waccamaw Siouan tribe gained recognition in 1971 by the North Carolina Commission of Indian Affairs as one of eight state-recognized tribes. The tribe organized as the Waccamaw Siouan Development Association, a nonprofit group founded in 1972; the group is headed by a nine-member board of directors, elected by secret ballot in elections open to all enrolled tribal members over the age of 18. In addition, the board includes a chief, whose role is symbolic.
From January 1979 through December 1982, State and Federal investigators conducted Operation NC Gateway, an investigation into the activities of several elected officials in Brunswick and Columbus counties. Law enforcement seized 37 million dollars of illegal drugs, arrested several leading citizens in the area; the scandal was labeled "COLCOR" in shorthand for Columbus Corruption. The federal investigation culminated in federal convictions of former Brunswick County Sheriff Herman Strong and former Shallotte Police Chief Hoyal Varnum Jr. among other government officials. The 1983 street value of the narcotics in Strong and his co-conspirators’ criminal enterprise was $180 million. COLCOR's success was due to the deep undercover work by FBI Special Agent Robert Drdak, his testimony to the Grand Jury led to the arrest of a long list of prominent Brunswick and Columbus County citizens. In addition, former U. S. Attorney, Samuel Currin, was the force behind Operation Gateway; the special investigative grand jury in Brunswick County indicted 22 persons, 35 were indicted in Columbus County.
Among those indicted were: Brunswick County Sheriff Herman Strong. Strong was released from prison after serving less than four years. Shallotte Police Chief Hoyal "Red" Varnum (conspiring to possess with i

Marlboro County, South Carolina
Marlboro County is a county located in the Pee Dee region on the northern border of the U. S. state of South Carolina. As of the 2016 census its population was 26,945, its county seat is Bennettsville. The Great Pee Dee River runs through it. Marlboro County comprises SC Micropolitan Statistical Area. Marlboro County is home to the Pee Dee Indian Tribe, they are a small American Indian tribe that has occupied the Pee Dee region for several centuries. The tribe was recognized by the Government of South Carolina around the beginning of the 21st Century, they have been seeking federal acknowledgment since 1976. While today the tribe consists of just over 200 enrolled members, they were once a significant cultural and political power in the region, their profound influence and continual presence in the area is why the region bears the Pee Dee name. Since 1976, the tribe’s official seat of government has operated on land awarded to the tribe in Marlboro County. Succeeding indigenous peoples occupied this area for thousands of years.
At the time of European encounter, the inhabitants of the area were the Pee Dee. Though nearly wiped out by European settlers, the Pee Dee Indian Tribe was able to survive centuries of war, disease and oppression, has continued to maintain a presence in the area. In the 1960s and early 1970s, researchers identified numerous sites in South Carolina and the Southeast that they associated with what they have classified as South Appalachian Mississippian culture, it developed about 1000 CE than did some of the largest settlements to the northwest that were closer to the Mississippi River and its tributaries. Town Creek Indian Mound, a National Historic Landmark located across the border in present-day Montgomery County, North Carolina, is a surviving platform mound and archeological village site of this Pee Dee culture, it was occupied about 200 years and abandoned after 1150CE, for unknown reasons. In 2017, the Pee Dee Indian Tribe began work on the Pee Dee Tribal Mounds located on tribal land in McColl.
The first European colonists to arrive in the area were Welsh settlers, part of the British Isles colonists who migrated south from Pennsylvania. In 1737, they established the first European-American settlement, called Welsh Neck; these settlers organized a Baptist church in January 1738. The South Carolina Welsh settlement consisted of 173,000 acres granted to Welsh settlers in 1737 by an act of the South Carolina Assembly. Within a decade, nearly all of this land had been taken and settled in by Welsh immigrants, the majority of whom were Baptists, they immigrated to what is now Marlboro County, South Carolina from existing Welsh settlements in Delaware and Pennsylvani as well as directly from Wales. The European settlement along the Peedee River was Welsh between the 1730s and the 1780s. On 12 March 1785, Marlboro County was established by state law of the new United States, it was named for the Duke of Marlborough. The first courthouse was built near the Great Pee Dee River, just north of Crooked Creek, in a village called Carlisle, named for Richard Carlisle.
In order to have a more central location for the county court, the state legislature designated Bennettsville founded in 1819, as the new county seat. A courthouse was built according to a design by Robert Mills. Construction began in 1820 and was completed in 1824, it was replaced in the 19th century. The second courthouse was expanded and renovated in 1953-1954. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 485 square miles, of which 480 square miles is land and 5.6 square miles is water. As of the census of 2000, there were 28,818 people, 10,478 households, 7,334 families residing in the county; the population density was 60 people per square mile.

Robeson County, North Carolina
Robeson County is a county in the southern part of the U. S. state of North Carolina. As of the 2010 census, the population was 134,168, its county seat is Lumberton. The county was formed in 1787 from part of Bladen County, it was named in honor of Col. Thomas Robeson of a hero of the Revolutionary War. Robeson County comprises the Lumberton, NC Micropolitan Statistical Area, included in the Fayetteville–Lumberton–Laurinburg, NC Combined Statistical Area. Since 2008, Robeson County has been identified as among the 10% of United States counties that are majority-minority. Members of the state-recognized Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, make up most of the 38 percent of the population who identify as Native American; the University of North Carolina at Pembroke is located in the county. It developed from a normal school established here in the late 19th century for the training of teachers of students classified as Indian, from mixed-race families, free before the Civil War. In the late 1880s local state legislator Hamilton McMillan gained state authorization for separate schools for this population, which he theorized were descended from Croatan Indians.
The public system was otherwise racially segregated into blacks, whites. Archaeological excavation performed in Robeson County reveals widespread, continuous occupation of the region by various cultures of indigenous peoples since the end of the last Ice Age, they had camps and settlements near the Lumber River for its water, transportation and related wildlife resources. Local excavations reveal that Native American peoples made stone tools, using materials brought to present-day Robeson County from the Carolina Piedmont; the large amounts of ancient pottery found at some Robeson County sites have been dated to the early Archaic Woodland period. Materials show that local settlements were part of an extensive Native American trade network with other regions. Portions of the river basin show that Robeson County was a "zone of cultural interactions."Swamps and artesian wells provided an excellent supply of water for Native peoples. Fish were plentiful, the region's lush vegetation included numerous food crops.
"Carolina bays" continue to dot the landscape. Numerous 10,000-year-old Clovis points found along their banks indicate indigenous peoples used these depressions as campsites. Early written sources specific to the territory of Robeson County region are few for the post-contact period of European colonization until the 18th century and after. Bladen County encompassed a portion of. English colonials named the river "Drowning Creek". After the violent upheavals of the Yamasee War of 1715–1717, the Tuscarora War of 1711–1715, families of Algonquian Waccamaw left the South Carolina Colony in 1718, they may have established a village west of present-day Pembroke, North Carolina by 1725. Most of the surviving Iroquoian-speaking Tuscarora, who were not taken as slaves, migrated north as a tribe, settling in New York by 1722 and becoming accepted as the sixth nation of the Iroquois Confederacy. In 1725, surveyors for the Wineau factory charted a village of Waccamaw Indians on the Lumber River, a few miles west of where Pembroke has developed.
In 1773, colonial Governor Arthur Dobbs related a report from his agent, Col. Rutherford, head of a Bladen County militia, that a "mixed crew" of 50 families were living along Drowning Creek, they were referred to as "mullatos," meaning people of African and European descent. The anthropologist John R. Swanton of the Smithsonian Institution tried to identify the origin of the ethnic group known as Croatan Indians since the late 19th century. Swanton posited that the multi-racial people were the descendants of Siouan-speaking peoples, of which the most prominent in the area were the Cheraw and Keyauwee. Beginning in the mid-eighteenth century, many migrants from Virginia entered the frontier area, including free people of color, most of whom were descended from colonial unions and marriages between free white women and African or African-American men. By the late eighteenth century, settlement patterns shifted; the name of the region's river was changed. After the American Revolution, the newly established state used a lottery to dispose of lots for developing Lumberton.
The town was incorporated in 1788, John Willis proposed the name "Lumberton", after the important lumber and naval stores industry. This dominated the otherwise agricultural economy of Robeson County throughout the nineteenth century. Lumberton was developed at a section known throughout that century as "Drowning Creek," a term still used for the headwater portions of the river; the first Robeson County courthouse was erected on land of the Red Bluff Plantation, donated for that purpose by Lumberton founder John Willis. Robeson County's post office was established in 1794. In 1809, the state legislature renamed Drowning Creek as the Lumber River, after the area's major industry. In the 1790–1810 censuses, descendants of these families were classified as both white and free people of color, a classification which included people of African-European, African-Native American, tri-racial ancestry; these settlers held few slaves. Late 20th-century researchers have traced 80 percent of the free people of color in North Carolina listed in those two decades of federal censuses to African American families who were free in Virginia in colonial times.
Based on court records, land deeds and other material, Paul Heinegg found that the free people of color were descended mos
South Carolina is a state in the Southeastern United States and the easternmost of the Deep South. It is bordered to the north by North Carolina, to the southeast by the Atlantic Ocean, to the southwest by Georgia across the Savannah River. South Carolina became the eighth state to ratify the U. S. Constitution on May 23, 1788. South Carolina became the first state to vote in favor of secession from the Union on December 20, 1860. After the American Civil War, it was readmitted into the United States on June 25, 1868. South Carolina is the 40th most extensive and 23rd most populous U. S. state. Its GDP as of 2013 was $183.6 billion, with an annual growth rate of 3.13%. South Carolina is composed of 46 counties; the capital is Columbia with a 2017 population of 133,114. The Greenville-Anderson-Mauldin metropolitan area is the largest in the state, with a 2017 population estimate of 895,923. South Carolina is named in honor of King Charles I of England, who first formed the English colony, with Carolus being Latin for "Charles".
South Carolina is known for its 187 miles of coastline, beautiful lush gardens, historic sites and Southern plantations, colonial and European cultures, its growing economic development. The state can be divided into three geographic areas. From east to west: the Atlantic coastal plain, the Piedmont, the Blue Ridge Mountains. Locally, the coastal plain is referred to the other two regions as Upstate; the Atlantic Coastal Plain makes up two-thirds of the state. Its eastern border is a chain of tidal and barrier islands; the border between the low country and the up country is defined by the Atlantic Seaboard fall line, which marks the limit of navigable rivers. The state's coastline contains many salt marshes and estuaries, as well as natural ports such as Georgetown and Charleston. An unusual feature of the coastal plain is a large number of Carolina bays, the origins of which are uncertain; the bays tend to be oval. The terrain is flat and the soil is composed of recent sediments such as sand and clay.
Areas with better drainage make excellent farmland. The natural areas of the coastal plain are part of the Middle Atlantic coastal forests ecoregion. Just west of the coastal plain is the Sandhills region; the Sandhills are remnants of coastal dunes from a time when the land was sunken or the oceans were higher. The Upstate region contains the roots of an eroded mountain chain, it is hilly, with thin, stony clay soils, contains few areas suitable for farming. Much of the Piedmont was once farmed. Due to the changing economics of farming, much of the land is now reforested in Loblolly pine for the lumber industry; these forests are part of the Southeastern mixed forests ecoregion. At the southeastern edge of the Piedmont is the fall line, where rivers drop to the coastal plain; the fall line was an important early source of water power. Mills built to harness this resource encouraged the growth of several cities, including the capital, Columbia; the larger rivers are navigable up to the fall line. The northwestern part of the Piedmont is known as the Foothills.
The Cherokee Parkway is a scenic driving route through this area. This is. Highest in elevation is the Blue Ridge Region, containing an escarpment of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which continue into North Carolina and Georgia, as part of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Sassafras Mountain, South Carolina's highest point at 3,560 feet, is in this area. In this area is Caesars Head State Park; the environment here is that of the Appalachian-Blue Ridge forests ecoregion. The Chattooga River, on the border between South Carolina and Georgia, is a favorite whitewater rafting destination. South Carolina has several major lakes covering over 683 square miles. All major lakes in South Carolina are man-made; the following are the lakes listed by size. Lake Marion 110,000 acres Lake Strom Thurmond 71,100 acres Lake Moultrie 60,000 acres Lake Hartwell 56,000 acres Lake Murray 50,000 acres Russell Lake 26,650 acres Lake Keowee 18,372 acres Lake Wylie 13,400 acres Lake Wateree 13,250 acres Lake Greenwood 11,400 acres Lake Jocassee 7,500 acres Lake Bowen Earthquakes in South Carolina demonstrate the greatest frequency along the central coastline of the state, in the Charleston area.
South Carolina averages 10–15 earthquakes a year below magnitude 3. The Charleston Earthquake of 1886 was the largest quake to hit the Southeastern United States; this 7.2 magnitude earthquake destroyed much of the city. Faults in this region are difficult to study at the surface due to thick sedimentation on top of them. Many of the ancient faults are within plates rather than along plate boundaries. South Carolina has a humid subtropical climate, although high-elevation areas in the Upstate area have fewer subtropical characteristics than areas on the Atlantic coastline. In the summer, South Carolina is hot and humid, with daytime temperatures averaging between 86–93 °F in most of the state and overnight lows averaging 70–75 °F on the coast and from 66–73 °F inland. Winter temperatures are much less uniform in South Carolina. Coastal areas of the state have mild winters, with high temperatures approaching an average of 60 °F and overnight lows around 40 °F. Inland, the average January overnight low is around 32 °F i
