Memphis Private Tour History
Influential History

Once a Chicasaw indigenous settlement, Memphis was founded in 1819 by investors including future President Andrew Jackson who removed Native Americans from their historic lands to Indian Territory in the 1830’s Trail of Tears. Today, the 63% African American population, many originating from the cotton slave trade of the 19th century, are active in the pursuit of equality, ownership and innovation having played a critical role in the 1960’s civil rights movement.
