This chapter discusses Francis Nicholson's arrival in Charleston in the spring of 1721 to take over as the first royal governor of South Carolina. An old hand at colonial administration—since 1686 he had seen service as governor or acting governor of New York, Virginia, Maryland, and Nova Scotia—Nicholson was new to Carolina, and he had much to learn. To further his education, a piedmont Indian headman visited him soon after his arrival and painted a map on a deerskin to show the Indians living northwest of the colony's capital. Nicholson must have been puzzled as he spread out the unusual gift and pored over its details. Cherokees, Chickasaws, Virginia, and Charleston were all there, familiar enough even to a newcomer.
