Town of Wagener

Wagener was known as Pinder Town and later as Gunter's Cross Roads (Guntersville) after a large number of North Carolinian settlers named "Gunter." The men helped make up Company 1 of the 20th South Carolina Infantry, which was part of Kershaw's Brigade during the Civil War. The town was renamed after George Wagener, a railroad activist and cotton merchant.
