History of Gallatin, Tennessee

James Madison. Andrew Jackson became one of the first to purchase a lot when the town was surveyed and platted in 1803. That same year, the first courthouse and jail were built.

During the Civil War the Union Army first captured Gallatin in February 1862. In July, General John Hunt Morgan recaptured Gallatin and held it until Confederate forces fell back to Chattanooga.

Gallatin was left with occupational forces after the war. Upon their departure, the area returned to being a small southern community with steady growth. The area was primarily agricultural until mid-century. By 1970, industrialization resulted in only half of the county population being considered rural.
