Abstract:

Letter from Isaac Shelby to John Sevier regarding the pistols and swords voted to them by the North Carolina Legislature in honor of their services at the Battle of King's Mountain.

Often called the "Father of Tennessee," John Sevier was born in Virginia, but eventually moved to Washington County, North Carolina [later Tennessee]. He and Shelby became heroes after they led their armies of patriot- settlers to victory at the Battle of Kings Mountain (1780). Sevier became Tennessee's first governor, serving three terms (1796-1801). Shelby became Kentucky's first and fifth governor (1792-1796 & 1812-1816).
