Certificate Vignette

Greenville and Columbia Railroad Company was chartered in 1845 and completed in 1854. It was a main feeder into Columbia from the South Carolina Piedmont for the Confederacy during the Civil War.

After the war, politicians defrauded the state of South Carolina out of $400,000 in a failed investment in the troubled Greenville & Columbia Railroad Co. The loss was equal to a quarter of the state's revenues for that year. As a result of the failed investment, the State adopted a constitutional ban on investing public money in stocks. More than a century later South Carolina's $17 billion pension fund is entirely in fixed income, mostly A-rated bonds and Treasurys.
