Free Republic

$42.00

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.
