About Memphis

Hernando DeSoto, a European explorer, is credited with being the first non-native to enter the Memphis, Tennessee area in 1541. It would take more than 100 years for the next explorers to arrive - French Fathers Marquette and Joliet sailed into the Memphis area around the year 1682.

By 1739 the French had established Fort Assumption in Memphis. In 1763 the Native Americans went to war with the French, and in the aftermath the English took control of the territory. This lasted until 1790 when Tennessee fell under the authority of the United States. It was officially declared a new state in 1796.

The actual city of Memphis was established in 1819 by 3 men: General James Winchester, Judge John Overton and a General who would later be President, Andrew Jackson. As the population of Memphis grew several industries prospered, but the area was primarily known for cotton and other crops. The land boasted a rich soil base, so it was an ideal center of agriculture.

Tennessee played a major role in the Civil War, was the site of major battles. After the war, Memphis was in dire need of repairs, but a breakout of yellow fever nearly brought an end to the city. Citizens who were already dealing with post-war conditions were plagued with this often-fatal disease for more than a decade, and historical records indicate that nearly 80% of the population was affected at some point. Finally, a new sewage system was built, and the epidemic was brought to an end.

During the 1960's Memphis was a hotbed of civil rights activity. Disgruntled sanitation workers started a massive labor dispute in 1968, and Dr. Martin Luther King came to the city to help. The day before he was scheduled to lead a protest march, King was assassinated as he stood on the balcony of his hotel room. This led to massive race riots throughout the state and across the country.

Memphis has long been recognized as a hub for music, especially Rock N' Roll. Legendary performers like Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash helped gain notoriety for the city and their new form of music. Today Memphis is filled with great club and venues where you see new and experienced musicians give electrifying performances every night.
