Mural In The Sycamore Shoals State Park (On The Bank Of The Watauga River)

Some account of the life and services of William Blount...:

"Among the pioneer patriots of the territory south of the Ohio who asserted the rights of its settlers both in council and in the field none deserve more grateful remembrance than William Blount."

"...Governor Blount reached the theatre of his new duties on the 10th of October 1790 and established his headquarters at the house of William Cobb on the fork of the Holston and Watauga. Here he organized his government and proceeded to appoint officers civil and military for the eastern portion of the Territory ."
