Title: Photograph of Fort Loudoun, British colonial military post from 1756-1760, lower Little Tennessee River
Photographer : Jefferson Chapman
Date Created: 1978 - 1998
Abstract: This is a photograph of Fort Loudoun, 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: John Carey in Fayetteville, TN to William Gannaway Brownlow in Nashville, TN
Author : John Carey

Abstract: John (Jno.) Carey, the Commissioner of Registration for Lincoln County, Tennessee writes to Governor Brownlow to request soldiers to protect the "colored voters" from the threats of discontented rebels. He reports that he has been cursed and threatened himself, but that he will do his duty to his country, his state and to Union men, "rebels to the contrary notwithstanding."
