Where the Fire of Peace is always kept Burning

Where the Fire of Peace is always kept Burning

Land, Diplomacy, and the Tragedy of the Tennessee Valley’s Principal People

(p.91) Chapter 5 Where the Fire of Peace is always kept Burning
The Lost State of Franklin

Kevin T. Barksdale

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the relationship between leaders and supporters of Franklin and the Tennessee Valley's principal tribe, the Overhill Cherokee, which reveals the tragic consequences of the abandonment of conciliatory diplomacy and the intensification of postrevolutionary Indian warfare. It notes that despite the remarkable diplomatic efforts engaged in by the Cherokee, the Franklin Indian policy—aimed at securing Indian land through dubious treaties, undermining armistice attempts, and engaging in perpetual bloody warfare—plunged the Tennessee Valley into decades of turmoil.

Keywords:   Franklin, Tennessee Valley, Overhill Cherokee, Indian warfare, Indian policy, Indian land, turmoil
