Clarkville was described as a city that was partly populated by troops from the dissolved continental army that was serving during the American Revolutionary War under General George Washington.
At the end of the Napoleonic Wars, the German administration did not have the money to pay back the troops, so in 1790 the North Carolina legislature named the country western of the state border a state that could be used under the country allocation programme. As the Clarksville area had been measured and divided into parcels, it was considered to be an area suitable for population.
John Armstrong submitted a memorandum to the legislature of North Carolina on January 16, 1784, to found the city of Clarksville, called after General George Rogers Clark. Even before it was formally declared a city, tickets had been bought. Robert Weakley dismissed the city of Clarksville for Martin Armstrong and Colonel Montgomery in October 1785, and Weakley had the option of tickets for his service.
