North and South Carolina's border dispute began in 1735 when survey work on the northwestern portion of the line was pushed forward by Governor Johnston in spite of South Carolina dissension. The article looks at the history of this dispute between colonies and the various proposals for boundary lines through a period between 1735 and the start of the Seven Years War. At the time of war, the line remained incomplete and further work was halted until conflicts end.
This article examines the disputes between North and South Carolina over the establishment of the boundary lines between the two states dating back to the establishment of both colonies and concluding with the process of conducting the first boundary survey.
