America’s Lost State

Karen Childs shares an article on A Look Back at Franklin, America’s Lost State which is based on Kevin Barksdale’s A Look Back at Franklin, America’s First Secession. Dr. Barksdale is a history professor at Marshall University and writes of how Franklin played a major role in “shaping the frontier in the Western territories”. Although not recognized by Congress as a true state, Franklin nonetheless existed for a brief 4 years in 1786. Today, the area is known as northeast Tennessee.
