Overview
Lawrence County History Trivia is a collection of fascinating historic facts, fun, and folklore from Lawrence County, Tennessee. It tells the interesting and little-known details of the area's past, from the county's early days, when David Crockett won his first election there out of spite, to the turbulent days of the Civil War when the county produced thousands of brave soldiers for both sides and at least one Confederate spy, to the early 20th century when goats slept in the county courthouse at night, to the modern era, when Lawrence County became home to one of the largest Old Order Amish communities in the South. The history of Lawrence County is a microcosm of the history of America. From the time of the Chickasaw Cession to the arrival of the Amish in 1944, each successive wave of settlers has left its own cultural mark on the county, and each has done its part to make the area the unique place that it is today. Used as a hunting ground for generations of native people, first settled by rugged pioneers and by men who fought in the American Revolution, caught up in the fever of Manifest Destiny, divided and damaged by civil war, reinvigorated by a wave of German immigrants, galvanized by the progressive era, modernized by two world wars, and industrialized by the bicycle industry, the Lawrence County experience has been the American experience, and this book explains it all with little-known facts from each era.
