About l76O led by adventurous pioneers, the white man crossed the Alleghanies into what was then the west. Rich lands, virgin forests, and an abundance of game to exceed his highest expectation were found in this new country. Here the pioneer with the visionof a grander day before him, first hewed out of the wilderness a home for his family, and then endured all the hardships, privations, and rigors of pioneer life, making possible the East Tennessee of today. As frontiers were pushed westward such men as Gilbert Christian, joseph Martin, and a host of other heroes whose last resting places lie unknown, lingered in the Tennessee Valley to cgrve out a civilized community upon the banks of the Holston River." After a century's time, the same Holston flows on and that same pioneer spirit is exemplified in the "city of indus- tries". ' . W ' 'M ,, S s- , A ., A t qnvn' ' .

It is a logical conclusion that this fort was constructed at the end of the old military road leading to Fort Robinson which was built in the year I76O. Fort Patrick Henry was com- pleted in October, I776, three months after the Battle of Island Flats. At this time two thousand men were assembled here under the command of Colonel William Christian in preparation for his march against the Cherokee lndians. . After Christian's return, six hundred militia were left stationed at the fort. Major Anthony Bledsoe who lived on Steele's Creek near Bristol was left in command. A skilled gunsmith and blacksmith by the name of An- drew Kinkead was also stationed at the fort. The men were not without medical aid either. Patrick Vance, commissioned as third surgeon, was skilled in treating persons with scalped heads. In july, I777, the Treaty of Long Island was signed at Fort Patrick Henry. It was here that Colonel john Donaldson built his flotilla of flat boats and left for the voyage down the river to Nashville. With Colonel joseph Martin located here as Indian Agent, the fort served as a depository for distributing Indians presents and relief, also ammunition to the frontiers- men for defense against the Indians and the Tories. The fort was abandoned after l782 when the lower Holston settle- ment became a part of North Carolina, and Virginia gave over the charge of protecting her foster children to her sister state, North Carolina. ,1--A ,T lil!

The Block House was built by john Anderson in the year 1776, the same year that Fort Patrick Henry was built. john Anderson married Rebecca Maxwell in l775, and he reared his family in this pioneer home, which remained in the Anderson family for more than a century. . All of the early travelers to Kentucky mention the Block House as one of the important stations between Virginia and the Kentucky frontier. lt was the last station where the traveler could contact civilization in journey- ing across the wilderness via Cumberland Gap. . Dr. W. A. Pusey, who is the best authority on the Wilderness Road, gives the following description: "The Wilderness Road proper began at the Block House. The roads from the north and south brought the traveler to this point. The Block House was the last station before Moccasin Gap or Big Moccasin Gap, the gate to the Indian country and about the same distance from the important western rendezvous of the Holston pioneers, Long Island in the south fork of the Holston River. lt was of course for these reasons that the early travelers to Kentucky were used to gather at the Block House in order to form parties for the trip into Kentucky."

He lived seven miles from Long Island on the tip of Eden's Ridge, four miles from Reedy Creek on the road that led from Long Island to Abington. This road, later known as the old Island Road, came from Warpath by the old Pyle grave- yard, across Chestnut Ridge down to the rear of the present Sparr place, on -to 'Indian Springs by the old Taylor meeting house lnow Ciunningsl to the left of Blountville, on out to the Abington highway, three miles beyond Bris- tol. The most likely location of Eaton's house was near the present Sparr place where the old Bristol highway comes into the new highway. When the settlers of the lower Holston Valley heard of the approach of Dragging Canoe and his warriors, .they gathered at Amos Eaton's house to discuss plans for defense. For temporary protection they built up a fortifi- cation around the house of fence rails. Upon the advice of William Cockei, one hundred and seventy of these brave militia decided to leave the fort. They' marched down the road on july 20, I776, and enc'o'untiered the Indians near the present location of Litz Manor. ' After defeating the Indians in this battle, Eaton went a few months later with Christian on his expedition against the Ch'erokees. On returning, he was appointed overseer of the road from his house to Fort Patrick Henry. But Eaton, like Boone, could not tarry long on a quiet frontier. He advanced to French Lick lNashviIlel and built another station. Here he was murder'- ed by the Indians. After Sullivan County was established, Eaton's Station servedas the court house until Hawkins County was cut off, and the court house was built at Blountville.

S.'s football team started its slate with an SO-O victory over jonesboro and followed a week later by taking Saltville 38-6. The first hard game of the season was won from Chattanooga Central I9-6. Landon High of jacksonville, Florida was next in lineg the 20-O victory looked al- most too easy. Bradley came to town and was scalped by the Indians 28-7. Erwin was dropped for the first conference victory 36-O followed by a dull game with the johnson City Hill Toppers, who fell 28-O. Knoxville City High School lived up to advance press reports and took the Indians into camp I3-O. This game was by all odds the most exciting game ever played on the local lot. The Indians came back from their defeat to win easily over Bristol, Elizabethton, and Morristown. They ran up a score of 40-O in final game with Southport High from Indianapolis. The I937 team placed six boys, Haney, Blessing, Rich, Smith, Hawk, and Burgan, on the all-conference teamg Hawk on the all state and honor- able mention for all-Southern. Ballis and Burgan received honorable men- tion on the all State. I Page thirty seven Page thirty-eight Kingsport. . . Kingsport. . . Kingsport Kingsport. . .

The old brick store in Old Kingsport, built by john Lynn in the beginning of the nineteenth century, is one of the oldest marlzers left. At this time Robert Christian laid off a town plot, extending from the boat yard up the ridge beyond where the railroad runs at present and west as far as the old Presbyterian Church. V, For twenty-five years this village was called Boat Yard, Christiansville and even Christiansville Boat Yard. After l823, the name'5l3'1gsport was more commonly used although certain documents continued ,gg refer to the place as "Old Boat Yard" for another quarter of a century.l'93i Q. Salt and iron were shipped from there as far south as Muscle Shoals Alabama and New Orleans. As early as l808, William King advertised that he would accept drafts whichlthe Tennessee planters received from a cer tain New Orleans firm for their own produce as payment for salt purchased from him. is ' l' . Boats, built on Long Island, were said to have carried cargoes up to twenty-five tons down the Holston into the Tennessee and beyond. - 1 A 1 --1+ -'-Jil-3'Ti,i,,, 1-----wh --f----e ' , 'V Y Y T 1 Y , .

This information is given by I. I. A. Hughes, a great grandson of john Anderson who built the Block House. This incident is an outstanding example of the revenge of Indians who were mistreated by malicious white men. Chief Logan lived in Eastern Ohio and had been brought up to live in peace with his white neighbors of Pennsylvania. In the year I774 an out- law British soldier under Captain Cresup lured several ofiLogan's relatives' into a rum station and there murdered them while they were drunk. For retaliation Logan, for the first time, went on the warpath into the western frontier. The Roberts family happened to be one of his unfortu- nate targets. He left thefollowing note tied to a war club on the scene: "What did you kill my people on Yellow Creekfor? The white people killed my kin at Conestoga a great while ago, and I thought nothing of that. But you kill my kin again on Yellow Creek, and took my cousin prisoner. Then I thought I must kill, too, and I have been three times to war sincfe but the Indians are not angry, only myself." All of the Roberts family were murdered except two boys, one of whom was taken prisoner and the other left for dead was taken to the,home, of Colonel Arthur Campbell lRoyal Oaker near Abingdonl where he was nurseclu until his death a few weeks later. - 0 T5 W 'w ,ff-X27-Qi. iff- - 's ' f' ,ins Kd , X , Ili f C f y , of " ,Q ffgfify Aim F-1- h .
