Gilbert du Motier Marquis de LafayetteFayetteville was historically inhabited by various Native American peoples like the Eno, Shakori, Waccamaw, Keyauwee, and Cape Fear people. 1783 our great city of Fayetteville was officially declared in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette. Fayetteville, NC was the first of many cities to be named in his honor in the United States.By 1820 Fayetteville had 3,500 residents and was ranked as the second-most urban city in North Carolina. In 1861 when the civil War broke out the State of North Carolina aligned with the Confederate States of America. During General Sherman's famous March to the Sea his Union Army attached Fayetteville, NC and destroyed the Confederate Army’s Arsenal located there.

By 1960 over a hundred years later the city saw a huge growth in population.  Construction, commerce and manufacturing were some of the city lures of new jobs. Fayetteville, NC is most known for Fort Bragg. Fort Bragg is the largest army base in the United States.  It is the home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces.
