South Carolina - Official Documents Pertaining to SC Railroads

The South Carolina state government was instrumental in creating and governing the rules and regulations of all railroads within the state boundaries. The Legislature passed legislative Acts to charter all public railroads since the railroad companies were granted the right of emininent domain. In 1878, the legislature created the Railroad Commission to provide oversight to all railroads, and in 1879 this group began issuing annual reports to the Legislature.
