It was the last of the Thirteen Colonies to be established as a colony. It was the fourth state to ratify the United States Constitution, on 2 January 1788. It seceded from the Union on 21 January 1861 and was one of the original seven Confederate states. It was readmitted to the Union on 15 July 1870.
