Today in Anderson History
February 8, 1888

Anderson County Confederate survivors attended a meeting at the Courthouse at noon on February 8, 1888. The meeting was called by group secretary Dr. Walter H. Nardin. Meetings such as this were common throughout the South in the decades after the war. Survivors would gather together to discuss memories, review changes made to pension benefits, and other shared interests.

Dr. Nardin was a well-respected and very successful physician in the Anderson. A native of Charleston, he was born in 1837. His family moved to Pendleton around 1839. Prior to the Civil War, Dr. Nardin was a partner with Dr. B.F. Brown under the name Brown & Nardin. During the Civil War, he served as an assistant surgeon. Dr. Nardin surrendered with General Johnson in Durham, North Carolina.
