Tennessee's 1st congressional district
The Tennessee 1st Congressional District is the congressional district of northeast Tennessee, including all of Carter, Greene, Hancock, Johnson, Sullivan and Washington counties and parts of Jefferson County and Sevier County. It is coextensive with the Tennessee portion of the Tri-Cities region of northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia. Cities and towns represented within the district include Blountville, Church Hill, Erwin, Johnson City, Kingsport, Mountain City, Pigeon Forge, Roan Mountain, Sneedville and Tusculum; the 1st District's seat in the U. S. House of Representatives has been held by Republicans since 1881; the district was created in 1805. The district's current Congressman, Phil Roe was first elected in 2008 after defeating one-term incumbent David Davis in the Republican primary The 1st has been a secure voting district for the Republican Party since the American Civil War, is one of only two ancestrally Republican districts in the state. Republicans have held the seat continuously since 1881 and for all but four years since 1859, while Democrats have held the congressional seat for all but eight years from when Andrew Jackson was first elected to the U.
S. House of Representatives in 1796 up to the term of Albert Galiton Watkins ending in 1859. Andrew Johnson, the seventeenth President of the United States, represented the district from 1843-1853; the 1st was one of four districts in Tennessee whose congressmen did not resign when Tennessee seceded from the Union in 1861. Thomas Amos Rogers Nelson was reelected as a Unionist to the Thirty-seventh Congress, but he was arrested by Confederate troops while en route to Washington, D. C. and taken to Richmond. Nelson was paroled and returned home to Jonesborough, where he kept a low profile for the length of his term. Like the rest of East Tennessee, slavery was not as common in this area as the rest of the state due to its mountain terrain, dominated by small farms instead of plantations; the district was the home of the first abolitionist periodicals in the nation, The Manumission Intelligencer and The Emancipator, founded in Jonesborough by Elihu Embree in 1819. Due to these factors, this area supported the Union over the Confederacy in the Civil War, identified with the Republican Party after Tennessee was readmitted to the Union in 1867, electing candidates representing the Unionist Party—a merger of Republicans and pro-Union Democrats—both before and after the war.
This allegiance has continued through good times and bad since, with Republicans dominating every level of government. While a few Democratic pockets exist in the district's urban areas, they are not enough to sway the district; the district gives its congressmen long tenures in Washington. Only eight people have represented it since 1921.

Avery County, North Carolina
Avery County is a county located in the U. S. state of North Carolina. As of the 2010 census, the population was 17,797; the county seat is Newland. The county seat was established in Elk Park when the county was first formed, but was moved to Newland upon completion of the courthouse in 1912. Founded in 1911, it is the youngest of North Carolina's 100 counties; the county is the newest of North Carolina's 100 counties. It was formed in 1911 from parts of Caldwell County, Mitchell County, Watauga County, it was named for Waightstill Avery, a colonel in the American Revolutionary War and the first Attorney General of North Carolina. It is noted for the large amount of Christmas trees that the county produces. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 247 square miles, of which 247 square miles is land and 0.1 square miles is water. Avery County is rural and mountainous with all of the county's terrain located within the Appalachian Mountains range; the highest point in the county is 6,165 feet above sea level.
Most of Grandfather Mountain is within Avery county. At 5,526 feet, Beech Mountain is the highest incorporated community east of the Mississippi River. At 3,606 feet Newland is the highest county seat in the Eastern USA.

Banner Elk Beech Mountain Crossnore Elk Park Newland Seven Devils Grandfather Sugar Mountain Owing to its high altitude, rural character and powerful Unionist sympathies from the Civil War Era, Avery County is overwhelmingly Republican.
Since its formation in 1911 no Democratic presidential candidate has obtained forty percent of the county’s vote, only Lyndon Johnson in 1964 and Jimmy Carter in 1976 have received so much as thirty percent. An illustration of Avery County’s rock-ribbed Republicanism can be seen in 1936 when Alf Landon won the county by 55.96 percentage points, making it Landon’s fifth-strongest county in the nation despite North Carolina being lost to Franklin Roosevelt by 46.80 percent. Avery County is part of the 45th NC Senate District which includes Avery, Ashe and Alexander Counties; the senate seat is held by Deanna Ballard, following the April 2016 resignation of three-term retiring senator Dan Soucek of Blowing Rock. The county is part of the 85th NC House District, a three-county district comprising Avery, Mitchell and McDowell Counties. Representing the 85th is Josh Dobson, a 1999 graduate of Avery County High School and a resident of neighboring McDowell County, where he served as a county commissioner.
The county is governed by a five-member Board of County Commissioners who are elected to two or four-year terms, depending on the number and percentage of votes they receive when elected. The current members are a retired banker. Lacey. Avery County is a member of the regional High Country Council of Governments; the county commissioners appoint a county manager to oversee day-to-day operations of county government of all departments that are not controlled by an elected head. The current county manager position is filled by Phillip Barrier, the county's previous Tax Assessor-Collector, appointed following the resignation of Tim Greene; the board of commissioners appoints qualified citizen applicants to various boards and committees, such as business and economic development, social service board, library board, Mayland Community College Board and others. The county seat in Newland is the highest county seat east of the Mississippi River, as is the courthouse, located on a pinnacle in the center of town, at an elevation of over 3,600 feet
Rowan County, North Carolina
Rowan County is a county located in the U. S. state of North Carolina. As of the 2010 census, the population was 138,428, its county seat is Salisbury. Located to the northeast of Charlotte, Rowan County is included in its metropolitan area; the first Europeans to enter what is now Rowan County were the Spanish expedition of Juan Pardo in 1567. They established a fort and a mission in the native village of Guatari, believed to be located near the Yadkin River and inhabited by the Wateree. At the time, the area was ruled by a female chief; the Spaniards called the village Salamanca in honor of the city of Salamanca in western Spain, established a mission, headed by a secular priest named Sebastián Montero. The Spaniards abandoned the area; the surviving Spanish left after Native Americans killed all but one soldier at the six forts Pardo established in the interior. The Spanish did not return to the interior of this territory. English colonial settlement of North Carolina came starting in the coastal areas, with some migrants coming from Virginia.
Explorers and fur traders were the first to reach the Piedmont, followed by settlers. The county was formed in 1753 from the northern part of Anson County, it was named for Matthew Rowan, acting governor of North Carolina from 1753 to 1754. It was intended to incorporate all of the lands of the Granville District that had heretofore been included in Anson County; as was typical at the time, Rowan County was a vast territory with an indefinite western boundary. Reductions in its extent began in 1770, when the eastern part of it was combined with the western part of Orange County to become Guilford County. In 1771 the northeastern part of what remained of Rowan County became Surry County. In 1777 the western part of Rowan County became Burke County. After the American Revolutionary War, in 1788 the western part of the now much smaller Rowan County was organized as Iredell County. In 1822 the eastern part became Davidson County. In 1836 the part of Rowan County north of the South Yadkin River became Davie County.
The area was developed for mixed farming in the antebellum period. Cotton continued as a commodity crop for some time. Following Reconstruction, there was continuing change in the county, with industrialization following the construction of railways and textile mills here and elsewhere in the Piedmont. Urban populations increased. A total of six lynchings of African Americans were recorded here in this period, which extended into the early 20th century; this was the second-highest total in the state, a number of extrajudicial murders that two other counties had. At the turn of the 20th century, the state had passed a new constitution and laws erecting barriers to voter registration that disenfranchised most blacks, ending their political progress for decades, after African Americans had been elected to Congress from this state and there had been a Republican-Populist fusionist slate. Both governors Charles Aycock and Robert Glenn, elected in 1900 and 1904 ran campaigns to appeal to whites; the racial terrorism of lynchings enforced white suppression of African Americans.
In 1902 brothers James and Harrison Gillespie, aged 11 and 13, were lynched by a white mob for killing a young white woman working in a field. In August 1906, six African-American men were arrested as suspects in the murder of a farm family; that evening, a white mob stormed the county jail in Salisbury, freeing all the white prisoners, interrogating the black ones, taking out Jack Dillingham, Nease Gillespie, his son John. The mob hanged the three men from a tree in a field and tortured them, shot them numerous times, it was not until after passage of civil rights legislation that most African American recovered the ability to vote. The county has worked to attract new industries since much of the textile industry moved offshore in the late 20th and early 21st centuries; the "250 Fest", celebrating the 250th anniversary of Rowan County, was held in 2003. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 524 square miles, of which 511 square miles is land and 12 square miles is water.
The county's eastern border is formed by the Yadkin River. North of Ellis Crossroads, the South Yadkin River meets the Yadkin; the South Yadkin forms the county's northern border, with Davie County. The southern border is an east-west line. Cabarrus County - south Davidson County - east Davie County - north Iredell County - west Stanly County - southeast Interstate 85 passes through the county from southwest to northeast. In the early 2000s, I-85 underwent an extensive widening in the central and northern part of the county, from exit 68, US 29 Connector north to the Davidson county line. A new bridge over the Yadkin River is planned. U. S. Route 70 enters the northwestern part of west of Cleveland, it runs southeast into Salisbury, where it follows Jake Alexander Boulevard to the southeast and joins US 29 North as Main Street. US 70 continues northeast as Main Street and Salisbury Avenue in Spencer before crossing into Davidson County. U. S. Route 29 forms Main Street in Kannapolis, China Grove, Landis in the southern part of the county.
It joins US 70 as Main Street through Salisbury, as Salisbury Avenue in Spencer. U. S. Route 52 is the main artery for the southeastern part of the county, serving the towns of Gold Hill and Granite Quarry. Just before reaching downtown Salisbury, US-52 joins Interstate 85, which it follows into Dav
Great Smoky Mountains
The Great Smoky Mountains are a mountain range rising along the Tennessee–North Carolina border in the southeastern United States. They are a subrange of the Appalachian Mountains, form part of the Blue Ridge Physiographic Province; the range is sometimes called the Smoky Mountains and the name is shortened to the Smokies. The Great Smokies are best known as the home of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which protects most of the range; the park was established in 1934, with over 11 million visits per year, it is the most visited national park in the United States. The Great Smokies are part of an International Biosphere Reserve; the range is home to an estimated 187,000 acres of old growth forest, constituting the largest such stand east of the Mississippi River. The cove hardwood forests in the range's lower elevations are among the most diverse ecosystems in North America, the Southern Appalachian spruce-fir forest that coats the range's upper elevations is the largest of its kind; the Great Smokies are home to the densest black bear population in the Eastern United States and the most diverse salamander population outside of the tropics.
Along with the Biosphere reserve, the Great Smokies have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The U. S. National Park Service preserves and maintains 78 structures within the national park that were once part of the numerous small Appalachian communities scattered throughout the range's river valleys and coves; the park contains five historic districts and nine individual listings on the National Register of Historic Places. The name "Smoky" comes from the natural fog that hangs over the range and presents as large smoke plumes from a distance; this fog is caused by the vegetation exhaling volatile organic compounds, chemicals that have a high vapor pressure and form vapors at normal temperature and pressure. The Great Smoky Mountains stretch from the Pigeon River in the northeast to the Little Tennessee River to the southeast; the northwestern half of the range gives way to a series of elongate ridges known as the "Foothills," the outermost of which include Chilhowee Mountain and English Mountain.
The range is bounded on the south by the Tuckasegee River and to the southeast by Soco Creek and Jonathan Creek. The Great Smokies comprise parts of Blount County, Sevier County, Cocke County in Tennessee and Swain County and Haywood County in North Carolina; the sources of several rivers are located in the Smokies, including the Little Pigeon River, the Oconaluftee River, Little River. Streams in the Smokies are part of the Tennessee River watershed and are thus west of the Eastern Continental Divide; the largest stream wholly within the park is Abrams Creek, which rises in Cades Cove and empties into the Chilhowee Lake impoundment of the Little Tennessee River near Chilhowee Dam. Other major streams include Hazel Creek and Eagle Creek in the southwest, Raven Fork near Oconaluftee, Cosby Creek near Cosby, Roaring Fork near Gatlinburg; the Little Tennessee River passes through five impoundments along the range's southwestern boundary, namely Tellico Lake, Chilhowee Lake, Calderwood Lake, Cheoah Lake, Fontana Lake.
The highest point in the Smokies is Clingmans Dome. The mountain is the third highest in the Appalachian range. Clingmans Dome has the range's highest topographical prominence at 4,503 feet. Mount Le Conte is the tallest mountain in the range, rising 5,301 feet from its base in Gatlinburg to its 6,593-foot summit; the Smokies rise prominently above the surrounding low terrain. For example, Mount Le Conte rises more than a mile above its base; because of their prominence, the Smokies receive heavy annual amounts of precipitation. Annual precipitation amounts range from 50 to 80 inches, snowfall in the winter can be heavy on the higher slopes. For comparison, the surrounding terrain has annual precipitation of around 40 to 50 inches. Flooding occurs after heavy rain. In 2004, the remnants of Hurricane Frances caused major flooding and high winds, soon followed by Hurricane Ivan, making the situation worse. Other post-hurricanes, including Hurricane Hugo in 1989, have caused similar damage in the Smokies.
Most of the rocks in the Great Smoky Mountains consist of Late Precambrian rocks that are part of a formation known as the Ocoee Supergroup. The Ocoee Supergroup consists of metamorphosed sandstones, phyllites and slate. Early Precambrian rocks, which include the oldest rocks in the Smokies, comprise the dominant rock type in the Raven Fork Valley and lower Tuckasegee River between Cherokee and Bryson City, they consist of metamorphic gneiss and schist. Cambrian sedimentary rocks are found among the outer reaches of the Foothills to the northwest and in limestone coves such as Cades Cove; the Precambrian gneiss and schists—the oldest rocks in the Smokies—formed over a billion years ago from the accumulation of marine sediments and igneous rock in a primordial ocean. In the Late Precambrian period, this ocean expanded, the more recent Ocoee Supergroup rocks formed from accumulations of the eroding land mass onto the ocean's continental shelf. By the end of the Paleozoic era, the ancient ocean had deposited a thick layer of marine sediments which left behind sedimentary rocks such as limestone.
During the Ordovician period, the North American and African plates collided, destroying the ancient ocean and initiating the Alleghenian orogeny—the mountain-building epoch that created the Appalachian range. T
The Watauga River is a large stream of western North Carolina and East Tennessee. It is 78.5 miles long with its headwaters on the slopes of Grandfather Mountain and Peak Mountain in Watauga County, North Carolina. The Watauga River rises from a spring near the base of Peak Mountain at Linville Gap in Avery County, North Carolina; the spring emanates from the western side of the Tennessee Valley Divide, which is, at this location, congruent with the Eastern Continental Divide. On the other side of the divides at Linville Gap are the headwaters of the Linville River in the Upper Catawba Watershed. Waters of the Linville River reach the Atlantic Ocean, whereas waters of the Watauga River reach the Gulf of Mexico; the river flows across Watauga County, North Carolina crossing the Tennessee state line at Johnson County into Carter County and ends at its confluence with the Holston River's South Fork on the Washington/Sullivan County border. After crossing into Johnson County, the Watauga River is first impounded by the Tennessee Valley Authority Watauga Dam, creating the 6,430-acre Watauga Lake.
This impoundment receives two important tributaries: the Elk River, Roan Creek. Watauga Lake is bridged by Tennessee State Route 67 over Butler Memorial Bridge just as the watercourse enters Carter County, Tennessee; the Appalachian Trail crosses the river on Watauga Dam. Nearly 3 miles below Watauga Dam, on the Horseshoe section of the Watauga River, is the TVA Wilbur Dam, which forms a much smaller but deep reservoir known as Wilbur Lake. TVA releases 130 cubic feet per second of discharged water back into the Watauga River during the summer months. Below Wilbur Dam the river flows north and west into Carter County where it forms the northern limits of Elizabethton, where the Watauga receives the Doe River. Farther downstream on the Watauga River at the boundary between Carter County and Washington County is the old TVA Watauga Steam Plant. A portion of the boundary line between Washington County and Sullivan County is formed by the Watauga River. Boone Dam is located below the slack water confluence of both South Fork Holston River and the downstream end of the Watauga River.
The distance afloat between the TVA Watauga Reservoir and Boone Lake is 20.6 miles. The true origin of the name of the Watauga River is lost to antiquity. Most documents agree that the name is of Native American origin, though which nation, tribe or language it descends from, its meaning, are in question. A North Carolina State University web page says the word "Watauga" is a Native-American word meaning "the land beyond". Another source states Watauga is derived from a Cherokee word, more written Watagi. Other common spellings include Watoda and Whatoga, yet another source suggests the word "Watauga" comes from the Yuchi phrase meaning "bass many." However, local reference to the name is attributed as meaning "beautiful river" or "beautiful water". There were at least two Native American villages so named, including one at present-day Elizabethton, which became known as "Watauga Old Fields", first explored by Daniel Boone and James Robertson in 1759. Another village called Watauga was located on the Little Tennessee River near Franklin, North Carolina.
The original settlers of Nashville, set out from the Watauga River area, called the Watauga Association, during the American Revolution when they realized that the British Proclamation of 1763 forbidding settlement of its colonists west of the Blue Ridge Mountains was unenforceable. Wilbur Dam is the site of first hydroelectric dam constructed in Tennessee, going online with power production and distribution in 1912. Wilbur Dam was constructed by the former Tennessee Electric Power Company, a owned utility purchased by TVA in the late 1930s. Elizabethton acquired the moniker "City of Power" because of the early local access to hydro-generated electricity from Wilbur Dam. Whitewater rafting, canoeing, fly fishing, angling with fishing reels are all popular recreation activities pursued on the Watauga River. Rainbow trout, brown trout, striped bass are all caught in the Watauga River; the Watauga River downstream of the TVA dams draws commercial rafting outfitters from both northeast Tennessee and western North Carolina during the summer months and commercial fishing guides throughout the year.
The picturesque Class II+ Bee Cliff Rapids on the Watauga River are found downstream between Wilbur Dam and the Siam Bridge, southeast of Elizabethton, Tennessee. For commercial whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Watauga River, the most popular Carter County "put-in" is downstream of the TVA Wilbur Dam, the most popular "take-out" is 2 to 2½ hours downstream at the Blackbottom riverside portion of the city linear trail park in Elizabethton; the distance afloat for paddlers from the put-in at Wilbur Dam to the Blackbottom take-out is seven miles, with landmarks along the Watauga River providing a good estimate of time and distance traveled. The Watauga River has a section of Class IV-V whitewater popular with expert kayakers, upstream of Watauga Lake and across the state line in North Carolina; this section requires significant rainfall to bring it up to runnable levels. It features continuous steep boulder bed rapids dropping up to 150 feet per mile, several falls and ledges only runnable by expert paddlers.

Watauga Lake, located east of Elizabethton, Tennessee, is the local name of the Watauga Reservoir created by the Tennessee Valley Authority with the 1948 completion of the TVA Watauga Dam. The Cherokee National Forest surrounds both the Tennessee Valley Authority Watauga Reservoir and Wilbur Reservoir in an area of northeast Tennessee that TVA describes as being located "...in some of the most beautiful country in the Tennessee River watershed." Construction of Watauga Dam began in early 1942 but was curtailed that year in favor of other World War II building efforts. Work on TVA Watauga Dam resumed in 1946, finished at the end of 1948, impounding both the Watauga River and Elk River for the purposes of flood, hydropower generation and downstream navigation on the Tennessee River and Reservoir system; the original town of Butler, now sits at the bottom of Watauga Lake. "New" Butler was relocated to higher ground above the summer pool edge of the TVA reservoir. Other nearby Tennessee cities and communities include Hampton, Roan Mountain, Mountain City, Johnson City, Bristol.
Watauga Lake covers parts of Carter Counties. Another much smaller nearby lake, not part of the TVA system is the Ripshin Lake located 6 mi SW of Roan Mountain. According to lake expert Holly C Ward, Watauga Lake is the third cleanest in the country. According to the 2004 TVA River and Reservoir Operations Study, Watauga Lake is 16.3 mi long, with 104.9 mi of shoreline. At the TVA summertime water level target "full pool", the lake surface covers 6,430 acres and the estimated depth of Watauga Lake is 265 feet at the dam. At full pool, Watauga's elevation is the highest of all TVA lakes at 1,959 feet above sea level. Watauga Lake is released by TVA schedule into Wilbur Reservoir and impounded by the TVA Wilbur Dam. Water levels in TVA Watauga Reservoir vary about 9 feet in normal years to provide for seasonal flood storage and for the augmentation of flows of water during drier seasons. Watauga has a flood-storage capacity of 152,829 acre feet. More than half of Watauga Lake's shoreline lies within the Cherokee National Forest and cannot be developed.
Recreational uses include boating, water-skiing, camping. There is no horsepower speed limit for boats operating on the lake. Several fee-based public and private boat launch ramps provide access on the Hampton side of the reservoir; the release of impounded water from both TVA Watauga Dam and TVA Wilbur Dam provides additional downstream riverine recreational opportunities such as whitewater rafting, trout fishing, kayaking on the Watauga River. Several Cherokee National Forest recreations are location along its shores. Houseboat owners have been conducting a large annual July 4 Boat Parade on Watauga Lake since 2001; the Watauga Lake boat parade starts at 2:00 p.m.: Interstate 26 Exit 24 at Johnson City east Tennessee State Route 67 to Elizabethton left at intersection of on US321/US19E across Gilbert Peters Bridge over the Watauga River and onto Tennessee State Route 91 turning right onto Blue Springs Road and to Watauga Dam.: Interstate 26 Exit 24 at Johnson City east Tennessee State Route 67 to Elizabethton left on Tennessee State Route 67 to Hampton and Watauga Lake.
