Exhibit Prepared By NC Museum Goes To Smithsonian

A new exhibit prepared by a North Carolina museum on the British and Cherokee nations has opened at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington.

The exhibit focuses on an effort by the British and Cherokee to find peace at a conference in 1762. It will run through November 25th.

The exhibit details both sides, through the eyes of the other.

British diarist Henry Timberlake spent three months living with the Cherokees in North Carolina and Tennessee, recording his impressions.

Three Cherokee leaders traveled to London to view British society and meet with King George the Third.

The exhibit was prepared by the Museum of the Cherokee Indian in
North Carolina and was supported by National Endowment for the
Humanities.
