Few states established before 1800 encompass such a variety of peoples and attitudes as Tennessee. Home to the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Creek prior to the age of western exploration, the future state of Tennessee attracted the French explorers De Soto (1540) and, over a century later, La Salle, who built Fort Prudhomme reputedly on the site of present-day Memphis. Ultimately, however, it was the British who established the first permanent European settlement in Tennessee when a group Virginians entered the Watauga River Valley in the eastern part of the state in 1769, followed soon thereafter by a number of North Carolina pioneers. By the time Tennessee was admitted to the Union in 1796, its Native American, French, and British stock had been joined by Scottish, Scotch-Irish, German, and Irish immigrants, as well as by free and enslaved African Americans. This ethnic diversity, combined with Tennessee's geography, created three distinct sections within the state: the urbanized and mountainous Eastern Tennessee; Middle Tennessee, with its rolling bluegrass country and livestock; and Western Tennessee, sandwiched between the Tennessee and Mississippi rivers, where cotton was king before the Civil War. The combination of demographic and geographical diversity has made the Volunteer State a fascinating, if challenging, subject for historians and genealogists alike.
