To do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in, and scramble through as well as we can.
--Sydney Smith (1771-1845) English clergyman and writer

This quote fits those early settlers who dared, risked, struggled and prevailed at Fort Watauga in present-day Elizabethton, TN. The above fort is a replica built in the mid-1970s in anticipation of the nation's bicentennial.
