The Lost State of Franklin

Record #:
Hicklin recounts a little-remembered incident in Western North Carolina in the period following the Revolutionary War. In 1784, citizens there felt isolated from the eastern section because of the Appalachian Mountains and formed, along with citizens in Eastern Tennessee, their own state called Franklin. It didn't last.
