Marshall is a city in and the county seat of Harrison County, Texas; according to the official US Census the population of the city was over 23,000, though that number has risen to 23,500, indicating slow yet steady population growth. Marshall acts as a relatively large educational and cultural center in northeastern Texas, and is currently the anchor of the minor Marshall micropolitan area, which actually spans three separate states – it’s known colloquially as the “Tri-State Area,” though there are many of those across the United States.
Founded in 1841 as the county seat of newly-formed Harrison County, Marshall developed into a rather potent political center of the Confederate states during the American Civil War and factories in the town produced many weapons and textiles for the Confederate army. Marshall was also a minor railroad hub in the region, helping ferry troops and supplies to the front lines. After the war, the city continued to be a major railroad center in the region and was also a major player in the civil rights movement during the 1960’s. Today, Marshall is well-known for its pottery, and is known as “The Pottery Capital of the World.”
