South Carolina Delegates to the U.S. Congress

23rd U.S. Congress (1833-1835)

The 23rd U.S. Congress met in two sessions: 1) December 2, 1833 to June 30, 1834; and 2) December 1, 1834 to March 4, 1835.

Due to the results of the 1830 U.S. Census, South Carolina was again authorized to send nine (9) delegates to the U.S. House of Representatives. All South Carolina U.S. House Districts were probably redrawn as of March 3, 1833.
