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 recog-
nized as a portion of North Carolina, but the pioneers as early
as 1772, asserted the right of self-government, and the consti-
tution 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was not accepted, and was withdrawn.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 moun-
tains to the United States." (See also "Wheeler's History
of North Carolina ” (Phila., 1851), Vol. I, p. 90; also North
Carolina and Tennessee.)
