An etching, titled ‘The Donelson Party of the Tennessee River, 1779,’ depicts the Donelson family, who along with 30 other families, traveled by boat down the Holston, Tennessee, Ohio and Cumberland rivers. Most historians accept Col. John Donelson's written account as the earliest primary document about Chattanooga and Hamilton County. PHOTO COURTESY OF LEONA AIKEN
