History & History Related Items

Pulaski history:

The namesake for Pulaski was Count Casimir Pulaski, a Polish exile. He found with the colonies in the Revolutionary War and was mortally wounded on 11 October 1779. Gradually, businesses came to Pulaski as more settlers arrived. The first mill was built in 1811. This brought more business to the expanding community.

The Boy Hero of the Civil war, Sam Davis, was tried and hung as a spy on November 27, 1863. A Civil War museum on East Hill at his place of execution, a statue on the south side of the public square and other places in the area all bear his name to commemorate his action.
