After the Revolutionary War, the leadership of the Tennessee Valley declared their region independent and formed the state of Franklin. In "The Lost State of Franklin", Kevin T. Barksdale chronicles the rise and fall of the Franklin statehood movement. Within four years the Franklinites crafted a backcountry bureaucracy, expanded their regional market economy, and nearly eradicated the southwestern frontier's Native American population. Although the Franklin state-hood movement collapsed in 1788, East Tennesseans still regard Franklin as a symbol of their regional identity and civic dignity.
