Stories-A History of Appalachia


Nov 14, 2020

Disputes in Appalachia between the well-to-do were often handled with the use of firearms with one of the most well-known people from the region, Andrew Jackson, being famous for his duels with rivals. 

And when it wasn't a formal duel, these folks would often shoot it out, much like in the Wild West.  Today we tell of a dispute that ended with the son of one of the parties lying dead on Gay Street in Knoxville, along with both of the combatants, an incident so bad it ended up being one of the last such gun battles in East Tennessee.
