APSU honors founding members of faculty senate

November 21, 2015

Austin Peay State University - APSU - logoClarksville, TN – When the first Austin Peay State University Faculty Senate met in October of 1975, then-senate president Solie Fott made two motions to the University administration.

The administration told us no.

APSU Professors’ Dream for Civil War Fort Comes True Three Decades Later

March 31, 2011

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In 1982, two young Austin Peay State University history professors – Dr. Howard Winn and Dr. Richard Gildrie – ventured up to the top of a forgotten hill overlooking the Cumberland River. What they found was a wild tangle of bushes and sapling trees, 10 to 12 feet tall, that blocked out the sun and made it nearly impossible to hike through without machetes and axes.

Judge Sam Boaz, who owned the land, had asked the two men to come take a look and see if it was historically important. Rumor had it an old Civil War fort was hidden somewhere in those weeds. The professors hacked their way into that dense mess until they found the old earthen walls and communication trenches of what was known in the early 1860s as Fort Defiance.
