  • -  The South Carolina cession was a strip of land 12 miles wide and more than 400 miles long, south of the southern boundary of the present state of Tennessee. It was claimed by both South Carolina and Georgia and, pending the settlement of the controversy, was ceded to the United States by the former state in 1781. In 1802 the portion of the strip north of Georgia was granted to that state, and in 1804 the remainder became a part of Mississippi territory, now forming northern portions of Mississippi and Alabama.
