Join us this school year as we explore the Upcountry’s colonial history. What did a Cherokee village look like? Why did the Scots-Irish settle in the Upcountry? How did the Revolutionary War shape today’s landscape? Discover the answers to these questions and more through primary resources, hands-on activities, and in-depth discussions.
