Columbia is the capital and largest city in the state of South Carolina, located in the center of the state at the confluence of the Broad and Saluda Rivers. 

It was established in 1786, and was later the first to announce secession from the Union in the days leading up to the Civil War.

Today, Columbia is known for its downtown area, mix of modern and historic buildings, its university, and historic military fort.
