Step back to a vibrant and dangerous time…America declares Independence in the summer of 1776, and people beyond the mountains build forts, stock powder and sharpen hatchets for the oncoming war. Walk among local legends—the vivacious Bonnie Kate, mysterious Old Abram, dignified Col. Carter, and daring John Sevier—for a glimpse of life on this dark and bloody ground. Colonial, native, and British re-enactors share their past through talks, mini-dramas and demonstrations of 18th century life. Battle re-enactments are held both days. Contact the park for detailed schedule.
