STATE OF FRANKLAND.

In United States Charters and Constitutions, Part II, p. 1664, it appears that as the state of Tennessee became settled, "it was recognized as a portion of North Carolina, but the pioneers as early as 1772, asserted the right of self-government, and the constitution of what was known as the 'Watauga' government' was adopted. In 1784 North Carolina "offered to cede her lands west of the mountains to the United States, but the offer was not accepted, and was withdrawn. This led the pioneers to form, for their personal security, a government known as the State of Frankland.' There was an indisposition . . . to rebel against North Carolina, and 'Declaration of Rights' and 'Constitution' which was submitted at a convention rejected, while the constitution of North Carolina, slightly modified, was adopted. The powers of an independent state government were exercised, however, until North Carolina, by a conciliatory policy, resumed her jurisdiction, and then, Feb. 25, 1790, ceded that portion of her territory west of the mountains to the United States." (See also "Wheeler's History of North Carolina " (Phila., 1851), Vol. I, p. 90; also North Carolina and Tennessee.)
