Salt marsh on the coast (with sandy beaches on the barrier islands); sand hills in the middle of the state, mountains in the northern part of the state - just like modern SC. About the only real difference is that the state used to be covered by old growth hardwood forests, where nowadays logging has cut those down and replaced them with pines.
