This treaty was consummated here on July 20, 1777, following Col. Christian's subjugation of the Cherokee, who ceded to the whites a broad domain for settlement. The North Carolina and Virginia Commissioners, led by Wraightstill Avery, and the Indian chiefs signed this pact which was soon violated by the settlers.
