History Talk With Robert Scott Davis Jr

Robert Scott Davis, Jr. will be speaking at the Pendley Brewing Company on August 25th at 7 p.m. on the subject of Andrew Pickens and his involvement with the Treaty of Long Swamp. Mind you, this was likely made on lands in present-day Cherokee County, near Ball Ground.  I look forward to his presentation!

Long Swamp (9-CK1) was excavated several times by Robert Wauchope and others,
The Letters of Benjamin Hawkins referred to the site in his journals back in 1796.
Continue  2  miles  down  the river  and  cross  Looccunna  heat  (Long  Swamp),  a  creek  35  feet wide,  turn  down  the  creek  and  thro’  the  remains  of  the  town  of this  name,  there  were  some  peach  trees,  cotton  stalks  and  corn;
Here’s a map taken from Wauchope’s actual report on the site,  It is almost exactly 11 miles away from Hickory Log – The Super Walmart location in Canton.
