Welcome to Fayetteville, North Carolina, home of the Fort Bragg army base. But that’s not the only thing making Fayetteville, NC, famous.

There are thirteen Fayetteville's in the United States, but only one is nicknamed “Fayettenam.” This specific Fayetteville is called Fayettenam because anti-war protestors in the 60’s opposed shipping the troops of Fort Bragg to Vietnam. From that opposition, the nickname was born. There are 204,000 citizens living in Fayetteville, making it the sixth-largest municipality in North Carolina. The United States Department of Defense is by far the largest employer in this city with over 15,500 locals working nearby Fort Bragg. Top Universities in the area are Fayetteville State University, Methodist University, Miller-Motte College-Fayetteville, and Fayetteville Technical Community College.
