View of Clarksville, Montgomery County, T.N., 1870 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This bird’s-eye view print of Clarksville, Tennessee was drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Stoner & Ruger in 1870. Clarksville was established in 1785 along the banks of the Cumberland River and named after Revolutionary War hero General George R. Clark; frontiersman William Clark’s elder brother. The town was surveyed and plotted as payment to Continental soldiers and their families for their service during the war.

Tobacco was the first main crop raised in the area and Clarksville became an important inspection center and transportation hub for that product and others. The Louisville & Memphis Railroad began to serve the community in 1859.

During the American Civil War, Clarksville was captured and occupied by northern troops.

Clarksville’s noted Stewart College is now known as Austin Peay State University.
