This chapter focuses on the establishment of a peace treaty between the British colony in Virginia and the Cherokee Indians in 1761. Henry Timberlake, a junior officer, volunteered to go to the Overhill Towns to explain the treaty. A Cherokee leader named Ostenaco accompanied him in his return to Virginia. Ostenaco, upon meeting the governor, requested an audience with King George III. Ostenaco and many other Cherokees withdrew from the Overhill Towns and moved south to establish the Chickamauga territory.
