The Annals of Newberry is a work of enormous magnitude, touching on perhaps 20,000 persons from the time of the colonial settlement through the Revolution, the Civil War, and beyond. Here can be found the names of all who took part in the development of the county, as well as such other matter–biographical, historical, anecdotal–as might properly constitute the annals of Newberry. Settlers and residents, mainly Germans, Irish, Quakers, Baptists, and Presbyterians, from as early as the late 18th century, when Newberry was formed from Ninety-Six District, through the War with Mexico and the Civil War, are identified in a multitude of homespun anecdotes or else discovered fortuitously in isolated documents and lists such as early muster rolls or army dispatches.
