Fulton County is the westernmost county of the U.S. state of Kentucky, with its western boundary the Mississippi River. As of the 2010 census, the population was 6,813. Its county seat is Hickman. The county was formed in 1845 from Hickman County, Kentucky and named for Robert Fulton, the inventor of the steamboat. Fulton County residents were largely pro-Confederate during the American Civil War. Forces from both armies passed through the county during different periods of the conflict. Because of imprecise early surveying of Kentucky's southern border, Fulton County is divided into two non-contiguous parts. An exclave on the peninsula in the Kentucky Bend of the Mississippi River can be reached only by road through Tennessee. Fulton County is part of the Union City, TN\u2013KY Micropolitan Statistical Area, which is included in the Martin-Union City, TN-KY Combined Statistical Area."
