Davidson County, Tennessee
Davidson County is a county located in the U. S. state of Tennessee. As of the 2010 census, the population was 626,681, making it the second-most populous county in Tennessee, its county seat is the state capital. In 1963, the City of Nashville and the Davidson County government merged, so the county government is now known as the "Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County," or "Metro Nashville" for short. Davidson County has the largest population in the 14-county Nashville-Davidson–Murfreesboro–Franklin Metropolitan Statistical Area. Nashville has always been the region's center of commerce, industry and culture, but it did not become the capital of Tennessee until 1827 and did not gain permanent capital status until 1843. Davidson County is the oldest county in the 41-county region of Middle Tennessee, it dates to 1783, when the North Carolina legislature created the county and named it in honor of William Lee Davidson, a North Carolina general, killed opposing General Cornwallis and the British Army's crossing of the Catawba River on February 1, 1781.
The county seat, Nashville, is the oldest permanent European settlement in Middle Tennessee, founded by James Robertson and John Donelson during the winter of 1779–80. The first white settlers established the Cumberland Compact in order to establish a basic rule of law and to protect their land titles. Through much of the early 1780s, the settlers faced a hostile response from Native American tribes who resented their encroaching on their territory and competing for resources; as the county's many known archaeological sites attest, Native American cultures had occupied areas of Davidson County for thousands of years. The first whites to enter the area were fur traders. Long hunters came next, having learned about the large salt lick, known as French Lick, where they hunted game and traded with Native Americans. In 1765, Timothy Demonbreun, a hunter and former Governor of Illinois under the French, his wife lived in a small cave on the south side of the Cumberland River near present-day downtown Nashville.
The first white child to be born in Middle Tennessee was born there. During the June 8, 1861, the divided population of Davidson County voted narrowly in favor of secession: 5,635 in favor, 5,572 against. Middle Tennessee was occupied by Union troops from 1862, which caused widespread social disruption in the state. See List of people from Nashville, Tennessee for notable people that were residents of both Nashville and Davidson County.

Moore County, Tennessee
Moore County is a county located in the U. S. state of Tennessee. As of the 2010 census, the population was 6,362, making it the third-least populous county in Tennessee, it forms a consolidated city-county government with its county seat of Lynchburg. With 130 square miles, it is the second-smallest county in Tennessee, behind only Trousdale; the county was created during the Reconstruction era. Moore County is part of TN Micropolitan Statistical Area. Moore County was established in 1871 from parts of Lincoln and Franklin counties, named in honor of General William Moore, an early settler and long-time member of the state legislature; the new county contained about 300 square miles, but Lincoln County sued and reclaimed a portion of its land, reducing the new county's size. Beginning in the 1820s, whiskey distilleries were developed in. By 1875, fifteen distilleries were operating in the county. At the end of the 20th century, the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg was a major employer and the county's primary source of revenue.
Because of the small size of this county, in the late 20th century city and county officials began to discuss creating a consolidated government in order to lower costs and improve services. In 1988, the Metropolitan Government of Lynchburg, Moore County, Tennessee was voted into law as the governing body of Moore County, including Lynchburg. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 130 square miles, of which 129 square miles are land and 1.2 square miles are water. It is the second-smallest county in Tennessee by area; the county is located on the rugged Highland Rim and in the flatter Nashville Basin.

While federal prohibition ended in 1933 with the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment, state prohibition laws remain in effect. All Tennessee counties are dry by default, though any county can become "wet" by passing a county-wide "local option" referendum. Moore County has yet to pass such a referendum.

Marshall County, Tennessee
Marshall County is a county located in the U. S. state of Tennessee. As of the 2010 census, the population was 30,617, its county seat is Lewisburg. Marshall County comprises the Lewisburg Micropolitan Statistical Area, included in the Nashville-Davidson-Murfreseboro Combined Statistical Area, it is in one of the three Grand Divisions of the state. The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association is based here. In addition, the fainting goat is another animal breed developed here. To celebrate this unique breed, the county holds an annual festival known as "Goats and More," drawing visitors from around the world. Marshall County was created in 1836 from parts of Giles, Bedford and Maury counties. Marshall County was to be named Cannon County. Due to a clerical error at the time of formation in 1836 the names of Marshall and Cannon Counties, both formed in 1836, were accidentally swapped and never corrected, it was named after the American jurist, John Marshall, Chief Justice of the U.
S. Supreme Court; the economy was based on agriculture in the antebellum years and well into the twentieth century. Planters had depended on the labor of enslaved African Americans to work the commodity crops of tobacco and hemp, as well as care for thoroughbred horses and other quality livestock; the breed known as the Tennessee Walking Horse was developed here. After the war and whites struggled to adjust to emancipation and a free labor market. Freedmen founded Needmore as a community in Marshall County after the Civil War where they could live as neighbors and be free of white supervision. Whites committed violence against freedmen to maintain dominance after the war. In the period after Reconstruction and into the early 20th century, whites in Marshall County committed eight lynchings of African Americans; this was the fifth-highest total of any county in the state, but three other counties, including two nearby had eight lynchings each. Among these lynchings were the murders of John Milligan and John L.
Hunter in the Needmore settlement near the county seat of Lewisburg in August 1903. Governor James B. Frazier offered a reward for information, as Whitecaps were blamed for the deaths, the state was trying to eliminate this secret, vigilante group. In the early 20th century, numerous African Americans left the county during the period of the Great Migration to northern and midwestern industrial cities for work. Three Tennessee governors— Henry Horton, Jim Nance McCord, Buford Ellington— were each living in Marshall County at the time of their election as governor. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 376 square miles, of which 375 square miles is land and 0.7 square miles is water. The Duck River drains much of the county.

The Stones River is a major stream of the eastern portion of Tennessee's Nashville Basin region. It is named after explorer and longhunter Uriah Stone, who navigated the river in 1767; the Stones River is composed of three major forks: the West and East forks. The West Fork, 39.1 miles long, rises in southernmost Rutherford County near the Bedford County line. The upstream portion of its course runs parallel to U. S. Highway 231; the Middle Fork, 19.8 miles long, rises in an area of low hills, or knobs near the line with Bedford County, near Hoovers Gap, an important troop movement route during the American Civil War. It flows parallel to, but west of, Interstate 24 and U. S. Highway 41, is met by the West Fork near State Route 99; the East Fork is the longest, at 54.0 miles. This stream is paralleled by U. S. Route 70S; the West Fork runs just west of downtown Murfreesboro. Just northwest of Murfreesboro along the West Fork is the Stones River National Battlefield, site of the Battle of Stones River, a major Civil War battle, fought from December 31, 1862, to January 2, 1863.
The East Fork runs well to the north of Murfreesboro, adjacent to the grounds of the Alvin C. York Veterans Affairs hospital, is crossed by U. S. Highway 231 near the community of Walterhill, site of a former hydroelectric dam used for a power supply for the surrounding area prior to the advent of the Tennessee Valley Authority. Near this site is a gigantic landfill operated by Browning-Ferris Industries; the confluence of the two major forks occurs in northeastern Rutherford County near Smyrna. At the confluence, both are somewhat slack because of the impoundment of J. Percy Priest Dam, a United States Army Corps of Engineers development constructed during the 1960s and named for a former Nashville Congressman; the impoundment of the reservoir led to major change in residential growth patterns in Nashville during the late 1960s and 1970s because people desired to live near the lake, developed with boat ramps, marinas and other recreational areas, an artificial beach area. In 1979 the dam was bombed with dynamite as ruse to cover a crime spree supposed to have taken place in the resultant massive flooding.
The conspirators succeeded only in destroying some iron doors at the dam's base. The suspects were convicted and sentenced to substantial prison terms; the dam is visible from the bridge just below it on Interstate 40. Just below the dam is the trail-head of the Stones River Greenway, an important part of the Nashville Greenways Project. Between Percy Priest Dam and the mouth of the Stones River, the river flows through Clover Bottom, a large flood plain and site of a former plantation whose Clover Bottom Mansion house, after many years of disuse and vandalism, is now the headquarters for the Tennessee Historical Commission. "Clover Bottom" was once the name of a nearby custodial school for mentally disabled children and adults. The immediate area is the site of a state mental hospital and the Tennessee School for the Blind. Clover Bottom is the separation of the Nashville neighborhoods of Donelson and Hermitage. Near the mouth of the Stones River into the Cumberland River, below the bridge on U.
S. Highway 70, is a private golf club; the Stones River is now thought of in terms of its major impoundment, Percy Priest Lake, is important to the Nashville area. The flood control provided by the dam has been important to the reduction of flooding downstream in the downtown Nashville area. List of rivers of Tennessee
