Fort Nashborough

The town's history is charted in this riverside fort, built by James Robertson and his men after a 400mi-journey on foot through the Cumberland Gap. A few months later, John Donelson brought the men's wives and children by boat, on a treacherous 1,000mi journey from the other side of the mountains.
