|Clarksville is a city that is located in the northern region of the US state of Tennessee. It serves as the seat of government for Montgomery County and is the fifth largest city in the state. It is located very near the Tennessee Kentucky border. English is the primary language spoken in Clarksville.
The city was named after General George Rogers Clark, the Revolutionary War hero, who was the brother of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expeditions. The city was incorporated in 1785. The city was primarily a small agricultural/industrial community until Austin Peay State University moved to town and Fort Campbell was built nearby. Today it is a busy town that serves as a major corridor between Kentucky and Tennessee.
