Book Description An original publication, 1998, 1998. Hardcover. Condition: New. (x), 690 pp., illus., index Almost 450 years of the history of the area which is now Spartanburg County are covered in this collection of facts, reminiscences, and folklore, from the expeditions of the Spanish explorers to the arrival of a prestigious German automaker. Over two hundred photographs and illustrations bring to life the persons, places, and events in this volume. Unique to this volume is the in-depth treatment of Spartanburg's industrial history. Mr. Foster, with the help of Mr. Montgomery and the benefit of his own years in the textile industry, was able to provide insights into Spartanburg's economic development not readily available from other sources. While many of the earlier events in Spartanburg history, especially during the Revolutionary War period, are well known to history buffs and natives, the author's lively style and eye for an interesting vignette or anecdote make these familiar stories worth retelling. Aspects of Spartanburg history recounted with fresh insight and additional detail include the pattern of migration down the Philadelphia Wagon Road; the hard-scrabble, back-country conditions of the early years; the battles of King's Mountain and Cowpens; the founding of Wofford and Converse colleges and the Textile Industrial Institute (now Spartanburg Methodist College); the devastating Pacolet River flood of 1903; the discovery of the cause of and cure for pellagra by a U.S. Public Health team working in Spartanburg; and the importance of the railroads to the "Hub City.".
