Fayetteville Personal Injury Attorney

Fayetteville, Tennessee was founded in 1809 in Lincoln County, Tennessee and owes its namesake to Fayetteville, North Carolina where many of the city’s earliest residents immigrated from. In 1815 the county courthouse, which now sits upon the city square, was completed and was used as Union headquarters during the Civil War. In 1874, Fayetteville replaced the county courthouse with what is now its current structure. Notable frontiersman and statesman David Crockett lived in Lincoln County in the vicinity of Mulberry from 1809 to 1810. Additionally, it has been recorded that the Tennessee Militia encamped in Fayetteville in 1813 before fighting the Creeks at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814. General Andrew Jackson commanded both Davy Crockett and Fayetteville physician, Charles McKinney, during the Creek military campaign. It has been claimed that Fayetteville is possibly the second county seat in the United States to be laid out by a legal mandate with a courthouse square in its center. The records indicate in 1810 a pin was driven marking the spot of the town square’s northeast corner. In 1815, a brick courthouse replaced a temporary log one that stood on the corner of the public square. Fayetteville consists of 7.3 square miles of land area. Today Fayetteville has a population size of 6,994 and supplies a pastoral setting that is close in proximity to the Redstone Arsenal and the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, in addition to other technological and aerospace firms in the Tennessee valley.
