Pulaski County was formed November 3rd, 1843. It was created from portions of Alexander and Johnson counties.
The county was named in honor of Count Casimir Pulaski. "He distinguished himself throughout the revolution, most notably when he saved the life of George Washington. Pulaski became a general in the Continental Army, created the Pulaski Cavalry Legion and reformed the American cavalry as a whole. At the Battle of Savannah, while leading a daring charge against British forces, he was gravely wounded, and died shortly thereafter." (Wikipedia)
