Title: Drawing of Tellico Blockhouse, American Federal period trading and military post from 1794-1807, Lower Little Tennessee River
Artist : Unknown
Date Created: 1972
Abstract: This is a drawing of the Tellico Blockhouse. 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: Address to the public about the election of representatives in Nashborough, Tennessee
Author : unknown
Date Created: 1783-02-27
Abstract: This faded document is one of the earliest from the settlement of Middle Tennessee. Dated February 27, 1783, it was written when Nashville was still called Nashborough. It speaks of the necessity of forming a government and instituting laws, as they are in a "barbarous and cruel" place. The reverse side holds what appears to be a draft of a legal document to enforce financial obligations, to be used in the District of Cumberland, State of North Carolina.
