Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – In 1780 a group of 300 daring pioneers decided to journey upon the Tennessee River and the Cumberland River in flatboats and canoes.

Why would they attempt such an endeavor which seemed to almost promise violence, deprivation, and other hardships?

The History of Renfroe Station on the Red River, 1780 – Part 1

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – Have you heard the story of the first frontier settlement on the Red River? 

Many times the history beneath our feet here in Montgomery County is not in the forefront of our minds.  It can be easily forgotten that the many places we live, shop, or work every day contain stories from multiple historical periods of Tennessee. In this case, it is the history of westward expansion and the Indian Wars of the 18th century. 

People may wonder why these stories matter.  Many of us were at one time young students who felt history class was incredibly boring and even called it our least favorite subject.  Yet, in truth, it is those who devote some time to the subject in depth who are a very fortunate group of people.  They gain insights and knowledge; they increase their wisdom.

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – If you can picture a nation as a living body with cities serving as vital organs and transportation paths such as roads, railways and rivers filling the roles of the arteries that provide life-sustaining blood to those major settlements, then it becomes easy to understand the significance of the Battle of Fort Donelson during the American Civil War.

Waged between February 11th-16th, 1862, the Union’s capture of the Confederate fort near the Tennessee-Kentucky border accomplished a number of important tasks for its army.

Austin Peay State University Biology Grad Students continue to excel in their Research

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Since about 1950, the small-scale darter—a tiny fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River—has existed in relative obscurity. Few scientists have heard of the darter or checked to see if the fish is in danger of disappearing.

But for the last year and a half, Joshua Stonecipher, a graduate student with the Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for Field Biology, has waded into local streams, trying to get an accurate estimate of the darter’s population size.

APSU Field Biology graduate student Joshua Stonecipher has received three grants to study the darter fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River.
