Wm Blount Was A Practical Man

Record #:
William Blount was one of the thirty-nine United States delegates to sign the Constitution, but he did so reluctantly because of he was uncertain of North Carolina's support. His greatest contribution to the young nation might have been his administration of the region south of the Ohio River. In 1796 he was elected one of Tennessee's first two United States senators. He died suddenly in 1800.
