' ^\<5?\ see st ret''hes j
back to the I
year loll j
when I >e Soto ?
with his par- *
ty of Spanish j
I adventurers probably roached ?
j the present site of M.phis on |
I the Mississippi. The French ?
f under La Salle built a fori here j
f about 1082. The English also !
j laid claim to this territory, in- |
? eluding it In tho grant to North .
I Carolina. It was not until 17?0 j
f that the first permanent settle* |
J ment was made by James Rob- I
? orison and this was soon fol- f
\ lowed by many other settlers j
I from North Carolina. They .
? formed what they called the I
Washington district, but this f
was short llyed as lt was |
promptly annexed to North f
Carolina. In 1784 the lnhabl- j
tauts, indignant over North Car- j
ol Ina's attitude toward them, 4
declared their Independence and t
formed tho State of Franklin j
or Frankland. As this secos- f
sion was not countenanced by j
North Carolina, for a number j
of years a state of confusion |
existed with two sets of officers *
trying tt> govern. Meanwhile j
the settlement suffered severely ?
from hostile Indians and from t
the Spanish, who still held Lou- i
Istana, and controlled the Mis- j
slsslppl river. In 1700 North j
Carolina finally ceded this ter- j
ri tory to the Halted States. Ry t
1700 the population had In- ?
creased to over 00,000, so Ton- |
nessee was admitted as the six- i
teenttl state of tho Union. j
At the outbreak of the Civil ?
war, Tennessee Joined the Con- f
fedoracy. In 1M0O, when tho j
state was readmitted to the Un- ?
lon, there was much disorder t
during the reconstruction period, j
This led to tho formation of the J
Ku Klux Klun, the Influence of j
which quickly spread through .
out thc Southern states. Thia f
secret organization took Into j
Iff, own hands rho suppres- ?

Tennessee contains 42,022 j
square miles, and ls sometimes j
called tho Volunteer state. It J
ls named after its principal riv- j
er, which ls a Cherokee word +
meaning "Crooked River" or f
"bo.id In tho river." .

Regulations as to how roads and

tion 21-18 of the Civil Code provides:
"No porson shall drive, lead, or,

Act passed by the Legislature of

livery citizen of Oconee county is
respectfully requested and urged to
