Rogersville, TN, has been suggested as a place for TAP to visit by a couple of folks who thought it would be an interesting place to learn more about. I wasn't overly familiar with town previously but to say Rogersville is full of history is comparable to saying the Appalachian Mountains are full of trees - I am just not sure it is a strong enough statement. Rogersville was settled in 1775 by the grandparents of the legendary Alamo participant and frontiersman Davy Crockett (a man we will cover in more detail in a future post) and is considered to be the second oldest town in the State of Tennessee. The Crocketts would eventually sell much of their property to Colonel Thomas Amis following an American Indian attack that resulted in several family members dying in the massacre. Colonel Amis built a fort just outside of town and much of his property still stands today as a tourist attraction. An Irish immigrant named Joseph Rogers came to town and was smitten with Colonel Amis daughter, Mary, whom he wou .. ...
Any Native student of history knows that Andrew Jackson, founder of the Democrat party, was also known as “Indian Killer”. As the architect of the Indian Removal Act, Jackson was responsible for the death of thousands of Natives. Under his drunken rule the Cherokee Nation suffered the Trail of Tears, also bringing Davy Crockett (who was the only member of Congress to vote against the IRA) to say, “You can go to *** I’m going to Texas!” as he quit Congress in shame of their actions. The founder of the Republican Party, Abraham Lincoln, while known as a liberator for generations of African-Americans, was the instigator of the Long Walk to Hwéeldí for the Diné. Thousands of our ancestors were driven from their homes into concentration camps when crops, homes, and water ways were destroyed under the scorched-earth policy of the Army looking for gold to pay for America’s “civil war”. Lincoln also ordered the murder of dozens of Lakota, Nakota, and Dakota in the largest mass murder of Ameri . ...

Notable Americans of Scotch-Irish descent include the composer Stephen C. Foster, the financier and statesman Andrew W. Mellon, the frontiersman Davy Crockett, the inventors Robert Fulton, Samuel Morse, and Cyrus McCormack, and the writers Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Of the U.S. presidents, those who can claim some sort of Scotch-Irish lineage are James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison, William Mckinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. That is to say, about 47 percent of U.S. presidents were of Scotch-Irish descent, and of 216 years of the presidency, 113 of those years were occupied by a president of Scotch-Irish descent.
Bernie Gamble This is an excerpt from the book 'Three Men of Destiny: Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston and David Crockett' By Billy Kennedy Seems you may have a connection with the King of the Wild Frontier.aka Davy Crockett. Apparently the Crockett family intermarried with the Gamble and Donaghey families. Why doesn't this surprise me ? lol!

The coolest thing about Davy Crockett? He stood up to Andrew Jackson on the Indian Removal Act. "I bark at no man's bid."
couldn't be any prouder of our East Chester family. The Relay for Life Baked Potato/Salad Supper was super successful. Thanks to everyone who came and supported this great cause. Then our annual Patriotic Program was a joy to behold. Pocahantas, George Washington, Betsy Ross, Mary Pickersgill, Thomas Jefferson, Sacagawea, Andrew Jackson, Annie Sullivan, Annie Oakley, Nancy Ward, Dolly Madison, Martin Luther King Jr., Ruby Bridges, Elvis, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Sequoyah, Davy Crockett, Jackie Robinson, Mickey Mantle, Peyton Manning, Sally Ride, Dolly Parton, Casey Jones, Harriet Tubman, Amelia Earhart, Abraham Lincoln, Clara Barton, and Minnie Pearl did an outstanding job. We even had a visit from Kid President himself!! Hopefully, our kids learned that everyone can have a positive influence on those around them. Thanks to everyone who had a part in this special, special night!!!

A Creek Indian village, Black Warrior Town, was believed to be near the mouth of the Sipsey Fork. Older maps show Black Warrior Town on the east bank of Warrior River a little south and west of the community of Dilworth, in Walker County. When one of Andrew Jackson's generals, John Coffee, was sent to destroy Creek settlements in the basin, the famed Davy Crockett mentioned Black Warrior Town in his memoirs of these scuffles with the Creeks.
'Cherokee' is Creek for 'people with another language'. The best-known episode in Cherokee history was also the worst: the Trail of Tears, the forced relocation of the Cherokee Indians from their ancestral home in the southeast to Oklahoma. The Cherokee people were an urban, Christian, agricultural, intermarried society who had supported the United States against other tribes. In the end this was all for nothing. Though prominent Americans like Davy Crockett and Daniel Webster spoke against Removal, and though the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional, President Andrew Jackson sent in the army. Fifteen to twenty thousand Cherokee Indians (along with Choctaw, Creek, and other tribes) were rounded up and herded to Oklahoma in the winter of 1838-1839. Driven from their homes without being allowed to collect their possessions first, even their shoes, the Cherokees were no better equipped for an 800-mile forced march than people today would be. Between four and eight thousand Cherokee people died of exposure ...
Alexander's Essay – May 3, 2012 The Battle of Athens (Tennessee) A Case Study in Grassroots Restoration of the Rule of Law "The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation ... forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of." -- James Madison (1788) Vets firing on McMinn Jail As a direct descendent of Tennessee Patriots who were veterans of every major conflict in defense of American Liberty from the American Revolution forward, I stand in awe of my home state's distinguished list of Patriot sons and daughters. From 19th-century notables like Andrew Jackson, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, Nathan Bedford Forrest and Sam Davis, to a long list of 20th-century Patriots headed by Alvin York, warriors from the "Volunteer State" have distinguished themselves in battle with honor and courage. Even our state's nickname was earned in recognition of the valiant service of volunte ...
