Also John Curry to attend The May Seige, hosted by the Company of Overmountain Men
May 15 - 17 2009 .
John Curry, of .Harrodsburg, Kentucky Curry, has a regular column in Muzzleblast, a publication for muzzle loaders. Curry’s interest has evolved over the past 35 years into an expertise on the southeastern long hunters of the 1760s. Curry now travels throughout the southeast region emulating those brave and daring men. He dresses in period clothes and relives the past. He carries nothing but what a long hunter of the 1760s would carry when he is out in the wilds. He researches the lifestyle of the long hunter through first-hand documentation, such as journals and diaries of the men who actually were long hunters. He writes about those experiences. He also takes what he has learned and shares it with other history buffs. Curry is a favorite speaker at many prominent history conventions and gatherings where he is keynote speaker and lead presenter. See John Curry and participate in the seige.
The Siege at Sycamore Shoals State Park, (located in Elizabethton, Tennessee) is a reenactment of the 1776 attack on the fort by 300 Cherokee Indians lead by Old Abraham. Another 400 had split off to attack other targets. Soon after the first attack, the Indians learn that Dragging Canoe's party had been defeated at Long Island Flats the previous day. It is clear to the Indians that the war party will not achieve its objective of driving the whites out of the area. Feel free to email me for more info about the event tiptoe2u@hotmail.com There is NO REGISTRATION FEE and WE CAN ALWAYS USE MORE CHEROKEE WARRIORS
