Rate this:
This program examines the first waves of settlement in the Appalachian mountains, beginning with the region's earliest inhabitants-the Cherokee people and other Native American tribes. Illustrating how these indigenous populations were eventually overwhelmed by the arrival of Europeans, the video focuses on the influx of Scots-Irish immigrants, their crucial role in the American Revolution, and their equally defiant stance against the fledgling U.S. government during the Whiskey Rebellion. The Appalachian origins of country music are also examined, with particular attention to the influences of African-American and revivalist religious culture.
