How Far From Marshall Heights to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Marshall Heights to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Marshall Heights and extending to:

  • Lewisburg, which is the Seat of Marshall County, lies just to the East Northeast.
  • Nashville, which is the State Capital of Tennessee, lies 49 miles [78.9 km]<1> to the North (N). If you could walk a straight line from Marshall Heights to Nashville, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<1> per hour, it would take about three full days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<1> per hour would take most of two days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 587 miles [944.7 km]<1> to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km]<1> per hour, would take just over a day, a buggy would take 23 days and walking would take 34 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Marshall Heights) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Marshall Heights. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.4462, Longitude: -86.8014     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Marshall Heights have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<3>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Marshall Heights to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 313.779 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 309.673 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 309.867 degrees.
