Free Republic


Drive into the mountains of east Tennessee or western North Carolina, and you can't help but feel like something went down. 

You feel like the trees in the old-growth have stories. Like stories of the Free Republic of Franklin: a territory given by NC to the Government as a cession for the Revolutionary War debt. A land that lived under the 13 star flag for four and a half years. Lived until they couldn't get enough support to become a state. A territory that sunk back into the fabric of the mountains just two votes shy. A state lost to the maps, but not abandoned entirely. Still there, in the trees and if you look real hard, you might catch a glimpse of it.
