Hand-drawn map of Dickson County showing civil districts and Charlotte, the county seat. Geographic features include the Cumberland River and creeks. Included are the descriptive surveyors notes--metes and bounds--delineating civil district boundary lines.
These 1836 county maps showing the new civil districts, required by the new state constitution, written in 1834 and ratified the following year, which mandated such civil divisions for taxation purposes, were done for many counties. Dickson County was established in 1803 and formed from parts of Montgomery and Robertson counties. It is named for William Dickson, a Nashville physician who served in Congress.
