CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A historian says choosing a permanent name for the Tennessee-Kentucky Army Camp decades ago turned into quite a competition.
In an attempt to encourage public spirit where Army camps were being built, officials asked the public to submit ideas. Historian John O'Brien told The Leaf-Chronicle that the selection turned into a "lively scrap" since the camp was located in two states.
In Tennessee, the choice came down to William Bowen Campbell, a war hero and statesman. Kentucky suggested Henry C. Burnett, who was eventually expelled from the U.S. House.
O'Brien says Campbell was known as a good soldier and commander and someone who lived by his principles even when they went against popular opinion.
He says as a consolation prize, Kentucky was given the postal address for Fort Campbell.
