This Day in Georgia History

December 20, 1860

South Carolina Seceded

In Charleston, a secession convention passed an Ordinance of Secession, making South Carolina the first state ever to secede from the Union. South Carolina’s secession would set the stage for Georgia and other southern states to consider casting their fate with South Carolina by calling for their own secession conventions.
