AMERICA’S “ALMOST” 14TH STATE
By John Tiffany. During America’s Revolutionary War era, John Sevier was known as the “Hero of the Battle of Kings Mountain.” He was also the governor of America’s little-known “14th colony,” the Free Republic of Franklin. Though seven of the original 13 colonies voted to admit it into the union, subterfuge denied “Franklin” its statehood.

But before he was a traitor, he had a fascinating career of which few are even aware.
