Front Porch to the Region's History

Geography defines East Tennessee as a land of mountains and valleys and with a history and heritage apart from the rest of the state.  The East Tennessee Historical Society recognizes this distinctiveness with programs and exhibitions uniquely tailored to the region.  The ETHS educational mission is to engage the public with the message that history is important. 

This Day In East Tennessee History

  • May 27, 1761

    On this day in 1761, in retaliation against the Cherokees for their attack on Fort Loudoun, troops were assembled in Charleston, NC.  Considering his supplies, as well as his army, inadequate, Colonel Williams Byrd moved down only as far as a settlement called Stalnaker's on the upper Holston and remained there, to the considerable disgust of Colonel James Grant, who arrived at Fort Prince George with an army of 2600.
