History: The Col. Robert Anderson chapter was chartered by the SCSSAR on the 25th of March, 1987, when the Andrew Pickens chapter, which included Greenville and Pickens counties, split its membership into two counties, Pickens and Greenville. Prior to the split, members of the Andrew Pickens chapter would meet one month in Greenville and one month in Clemson. The travel became a problem, with many members living in Greenville unwilling to travel to Clemson every other month, so a new chapter in Greenville was formed. Since Colonel Anderson and General Pickens were such close friends and comrades, it was only logical to name the new chapter after Colonel Anderson.
