Volume II - Thoroughfare For Freedom The Second Atlas of the Cumberland Settlements 1779 - 1804. The story of where we came from, how we got here, the land we settled and the society we created. The road by which we traveled came to be known as The Road to the Holston and it was built entirely by Middle Tennesseans, across the rugged wilderness of the Cumberland Plateau, then still Cherokee Territory. It replaced the longer, indirect route through Cumberland Gap and Kentucky, connecting our fragile settlements with the more established ones of East Tennessee, the Carolinas and Virginia.

The second volume of "The Book of Dust", this bookends Pullman's notable trilogy, "His dark materials". The children he wrote it for have grown into adults, as has his courageous heroine. If you liked the earlier books, you will love this. But it is in no way a chidren's book. It contains violence, brutality, even an attempted rape. Into this scenario Pullman writes contemporary issues, from the treatment of asylum seekers and incursions by fundamentalist Islam to corporate takeover of academic institutions.

A text written with a painter's eye for detail and extravagantly illustrated with a painter's brush, this second volume enlarges the picture of the Cumberland Settlers. Crossing the Cumberland Mountains along a new road built in 1788, they entered Middle Tennessee along this Thoroughfare for Freedom.

Freedom and land were their twin goals as they pushed south and west where they cut the canebrakes, built forts and established "stations".

Land was the canvas upon which their picture was drawn. Land would prove to be a paradox, a prize to wrest with blood from those Native Americans whose hunting grounds were held so dear; a prize which would provide opportunities for accumulating wealth by some through the freedom-less servitude of others. Land would be the basis for speculation and fraud which would bring down high officials of the state and men of prominence.

Volume II presents sketches of men of uncommon measure such as the Bledsoes, Winchesters, James Robertson and Casper Mansker as well as President Andrew Jackson. Finally, Volume II leaves the reader eager to see what will be added to the picture of Middle Tennessee in Volume III.

I've read a couple of historical novels about this territory. Obviously, they used this as background research. If you love history or if you have Tennessee ties, you'll probably enjoy this.

Adoranin
Beautifully illustrated with great art. Great logical organization of content with paintings, pictures, color maps with records of names of settlers and location on the maps where they settled.

The maping is the best. The details help me visualize locations on today's maps.

This is a great resource for anyone insterested in their ancestors migration into Tennessee. It is a helpful in locating
the plces of the land grants and the routes that they traveled in reaching Tennessee.

"Tennessee was to become the wedge that opened the southwest to America, and Middle Tennessee was the point of that wedge."

So begins the coffee table-sized Thoroughfare for Freedom, Volume II, subtitled The Second Atlas of the Cumberland Settlements 1779-1804, Showing Who Came, How They Came, and Where They Put Down Roots. This volume, by Jack Masters and Bill Puryear, begins with the history of Middle Tennessee from the prehistoric era of "The Ancient Ones" who hunted mastodons in the Cumberland Valley. It presents the story of the relatively obscure battle of King's Mountain (led by John Sevier--later the first governor of Tennessee, and Isaac Shelby--later the first governor of Kentucky); and explains why this battle helped to turn the tide of the Revolutionary War in favor of the Americans. Thoroughfare also introduces the reader to the "Longhunters" who came to Tennessee in the mid-1700's as "the vanguard of American civilization." Though many of these early pioneers originally came for hides and pelts, a great number stayed or returned for the land, bringing with them their extended families (including my own).

Because settlers needed both refuge and supplies, in 1779 Kasper Mansker built the first fort along the Cumberland near present-day Nashville. Many settlers were killed in the Indian wars of 1779-1782, in attacks by the native tribes that had theretofore hunted peacefully on this land for generations. Hostilities decreased somewhat after the Cherokee and Chickamauga tribes signed treaties in 1795; however, the Spanish along the Mississippi continued to supply the Creeks and others, encouraging them to continue their raids on the settlers.

In 1796, the new state of Tennessee was formed and Andrew Jackson--"Old Hickory"--became the first congressman from the state. His influence on Tennessee and the country, including many of the actions he initiated after his election to the Presidency in 1828, can hardly be overstated. As Masters and Puryear point out: "His history is the history of Tennessee, and without him the boundary of the United States might well have ended at the banks of the Mississippi..."

Many who had served during the Revolutionary War were issued land warrants to settle in Middle Tennessee--including my own ancestor, William Goad, who received a grant of 640 acres "on the south side of the Cumberland." [As an amateur genealogist, I was so excited to see a copy of the handwritten warrant (dated 23 September, 1785) that described the actual boundaries of William's property. The promise of land on (what was then) the "western frontier" had clearly lured my prominent English ancestors from their adopted home of Virginia after 120 years. This explained at last how my great-grandfather, Henry S. Goad, came to be born in Smith County, Tennessee, in 1840.]

I was also interested in reading the details of the feud between Andrew Jackson and John Sevier, who was my great-great-ever-so-great uncle. What I already knew was that Jackson had challenged Sevier to a duel for what he perceived to be a slur on his beloved Rachel. What I didn't know was what had really transpired on the day they met for combat. As told in Thoroughfare, after some mutual cursing, Jackson threatened to cane Sevier, who drew his sword, causing his frightened horse to run away with his pistols. Seizing the advantage, Jackson drew his own pistol against Sevier, who ducked behind a nearby tree. Sevier's son drew on Jackson; Jackson's second drew on Sevier's son--at which point members of Sevier's party were able to persuade both men to reconsider the conflict. Though the two were never to reconcile or become friends, happily both Jackson and Sevier survived the day and went on to change the history of their time and place. If, as is generally believed, it was the conflict between Jackson and Sevier that caused the political demarcation between "East" and "West" Tennessee, the case could be made that the duel continues to this day...

In the conclusion to their history of the Cumberland, Master and Puryear note: "...the aims of the speculators to promote immigration and sell their lands at a profit did coincide with the desire of westward-bound settlers for new and fresh land." This was certainly true of my own pioneer ancestors, for whom Tennessee fulfilled its promise of rich, virgin land for those hardy enough first to claim it and then to keep it.

This synopsis of Thoroughfare for Freedom gives the merest peek into the fascinating view of Middle Tennessee provided in this second volume by Masters and Puryear. Genealogists and historians will be especially interested in the list of "Tennesseans Who Served as Patriots in the American Revolution," as well as the detailed maps and charts, current day photos, and other artifacts to enlighten the reader about that period of Tennessee's history. As with the first volume of the atlas, David Wright's paintings alone are worth the price of the book. Wright's remarkable painting titled Gateway to the West, which graces the cover of the book, depicts Daniel Boone leading a group of settlers through the Cumberland Gap. It is easy for me to imagine that these were my own ancestors who, I have learned, not only knew but traveled with and lived near Boone.

The book's Appendices (pp. 138-234) include an account of "Sales of Slaves 1789-1804," an extensive bibliography and references section, and a list of "North Carolina Land Grants in Tennessee"--with maps showing actual locations for each. Finally, a detailed 20-page index includes both surnames and place names to help readers find the information of particular interest to them.

Those interested in more details about land grants will also be interested in the supplemental text, "Land Grant Genealogy, The Second Atlas 1779-1804, Data Supplement 3, North Carolina Warrants, Surveys & Surveyor Plats. The supplementary text provides copies of land warrants for all of Rutherford, Williamson & Wilson Counties, the remainder of Davidson & Smith Counties, portions of Cannon, Cheatham, DeKalb, Jackson, Putnam, Sumner & Trousdale Counties of Middle Tennessee.

This "sequel" to Volume I--Founding of the Cumberland Settlements: The First Atlas 1779-180--is at least as good as, and possibly better than, its predecessor. If you are interested in the history and people of Middle Tennessee--especially if your ancestors, like mine, moved westward through the Cumberland Gap, you will definitely want to purchase Thoroughfare. I'm already anticipating Volume III, which is now in the works.
