Two monuments were erected in Graham County to honor Junaluska, Native American chief during the 18th century. He aided General Andrew Jackson's forces in the battle with Creek Indians and was credited with saving Jackson's life during the Battle of Horsehoe Bend. Neither of Junaluska's efforts solidified Jackson's allegiance and Jackson ordered a militia to remove the Cherokee from the mountains. The Mexican War slowed these efforts and Junaluska along with his Cherokee tribesmen remained in the Smoky Mountains.
