Abstract:
A land survey ending in 1737 established a boundary between North and South Carolina. In 1750, both states colonized towns in the same region, but it was not until 1762 that the British Board of Trade asked for the boundary to be resurveyed. Finally, in 1813, the boundary line dispute was concluded to the satisfaction of both states.\r\n
