To two true pioneers, Mrs.
j. W. Dobyns and Mrs. Frank
Wright, whose years of ser-
vice and sacrifice on the
school board have not gone
unappreciated, we, the class
of nineteen hundred and
thirty-eight, respectfully dedi-
cate this "pioneer" edition of

FORT PATRICK H EN RY
Fort Patrick Henry, as shown on the map drawn by Colonel William
Christian, was located on the north bank of the Holston at the head of Long
Island near the present Eastman plant. 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
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.
