Watauga And Nancy Ward

Fort Watauga

When Nancy Ward found that her people had fallen in with the plans of Stuart and Cameron, she communicated the intelligence to a trader named Isaac Thomas and provided him with the means of setting out as an express to warn the back settlers of their danger.  Accompanied by William Fawling he lost no time in conveying the alarming intelligence to the people on the Watauga and Holston.
