Anniversary of Grant's Campaign - Fort Dobbs


In June of 1761, a British army under Col. James Grant invaded the Cherokee’s homeland. Over the course of a month, this force destroyed 18 Cherokee towns in a bid to end the war once and for all.

This program will contrast life in barracks for Provincial soldiers with life in the field as experienced by both Grant’s men and their Cherokee opponents. Scheduled historic weapons demonstrations will be featured.

Saturday, 10am-4pm. Free admission.
