Title: Aerial photograph of Fort Loudoun during archaeological excavations, taken in 1976
Photographer : Karl Kutruff
Date Created: 1976
Abstract: This is an aerial photograph of Fort Loudoun during archaeological excavations by the University of Tennessee in 1976. Fort Loudoun was a British colonial military post on the lower Little Tennessee River that was occupied from 1756-1760. It was built in Overhill Cherokee territory in what is presently Monroe County and named for John Campbell, the Earl of Loudoun, who was commander-in-chief of British forces in the colonies. William G. De Brahm designed the fort, but abandoned the project because of disagreements he had with Capt. Demerre who commanded the militia troops and British regulars stationed at the post. Survival of this frontier outpost was dependent upon good relations with the Cherokees who supplied food for trade goods. During the French and Indian War, tensions began to mount between the Cherokees and the colonists. In March 1760 the Cherokees laid siege to the fort, cutting off supplies and forcing its surrender. Excavations of Fort Loudoun were conducted by the University of Tennessee from 1975-1977 in anticipation of the flooding of the lower Little Tennessee River by the Tellico Dam Reservoir. The excavations were conducted under contract with the National Park Service and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Principal investigator and Field Director, Carl Kutruff.

Title: James M. King at Bachelors` Hall to James Moore in North Carolina
Author : King, James Moore, 1792-1877
Date Created: 1815-03-15
Abstract: In this letter, James Moore King gave a detailed description of the fighting in and around New Orleans at the end of the War of 1812. Part of the Tennessee Volunteers serving under General Coffee and General Jackson, King described several battles beginning December 23, 1814 through January 8, 1815. In that final battle, King said that the British were "shamefully whipped," taking much heavier losses than the Americans. He claimed that it "killed the British joy...to think that a parcel of raw militia, undisciplined Tennesseans, should best the chosen troops of England, who had fought so many successful battles in France and America now to be defeated by an equal force of raw Tennesseans and Kentuckians, supposed to be 10,000 each." The location at the top of the letter says "Bachelors` Hall, The Ladies Choice."

Title: Photograph of Tellico Blockhouse, American Federal period trading and military post from 1794-1807, Lower Little Tennessee River
Photographer : Richard R. Polhemus
Date Created: 1972
Abstract: This is a photograph of the Tellico Blockhouse excavations. The Tellico Blockhouse was constructed in 1794-95 adjacent to the earlier Fort Loudoun at the confluence of the Tellico and Little Tennessee Rivers in what is presently Monroe County as a federal outpost. In 1805 federal officials and Overhill Cherokees negotiated a treaty at the Tellico Blockhouse which moved the federal agency south to the mouth of the Hiawassee. By 1807 the federal government abandoned Tellico and moved the rest of its agency to the Hiawassee River post, the new center of the Overhill Cherokee settlement. Excavations of the Tellico Blockhouse were conducted by the University of Tennessee from 1972-1974 in anticipation of the flooding of the lower Little Tennessee River by the Tellico Dam Reservoir. Excavations of the Blockhouse were conducted under contract with the National Park Service and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Principal investigator, Alfred K. Guthe. Field Director, Richard R. Polhemus.

Title: Photograph of the central hearth of a Cherokee townhouse in mid-18th century Toqua
Photographer : Robert D. Newman
Date Created: 1977
Abstract: This is a photograph of the central hearth of a Cherokee townhouse at Toqua, a mid-18th century Overhill Cherokee Village on the Little Tennessee River (present day Monroe County, Tennessee). The village, whose name means place of a mythic great fish, is on the same site as a late Mississippian Dallas culture, 1200-1600 A.D. American Revolutionary War forces destroyed the town in 1776 and 1780. It was destroyed again in 1788 post-war hostilities. In the 1970's, extensive archaeological excavations were conducted prior to its inundation by the waters of the Tellico Dam Reservoir. These excavations uncovered Mississippian structures as well as those of 18th century Cherokee. Of the latter were recorded 2 townhouses, 10 dwellings, and a number of refuse pits and burials. Excavations of Overhill Cherokee Villages were conducted by the University of Tennessee between 1967 and 1983 as part of the Tellico Archaeological Project. Excavations continued until 1983, and laboratory studies and report preparation continued until 1987. The excavations were conducted under contract with the National Park Service and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Principal Investigator, Jefferson Chapman. Field Director, Robert D. Newman.

Title: Proceedings with the Cherokees, Tellico Block House, December, 1794 & January, 1795
Attributed name : Silas Dinsmoor
Attributed name : William Blount
Attributed name : the Bloody Fellow
Date Created: 1794-12-28 - 1795-01
Abstract: A copy of the President`s Certificate respecting the Bounds of the Chickasaws Lands. Beginning Dec 28, 1794, a record of the minutes of treaty negotiations between Governor William Blount, Silas Dinsmoor, and John McKee and Agents to the Cherokees and several Cherokee leaders including the Bloody Fellow. The first page has a list of those present that day, starting with Blount. Blount first states that the negotiations are for a trade of prisoners and peace in the future, with the understanding that there has been many injuries on each side in the past. Blount urges the tribes to move to the Chatanuga mountain and join the Creek tribes. The talks the next few days center on prisoner trading. The Bloody Fellow states that he does not want to move and live with the Creek tribes, and urges Blount to accept a treaty brokered with Dinsmoor. In January the two speak to the posts erected around the Indian settlement which the settlers find comforting but the Indians find restrictive to hunting. Blount accused Bloody Fellow of stealing horses, and Bloody Fellow says if whites want to see their horses they should go to North Carolina. The next day Blount states that the treaties are settled but the Cherokee should help broker a peace with the Creeks whom the Cherokee are not in accord with. The talks discuss the relationship of Tennessee with the other tribes and the difficulties that arise from the tribes and whites sharing the land. They also discuss at length prisoners, and the desire for peace.
