The Territory South of the River Ohio was a territory of the United States that existed from May 26, 1790, until June 1, 1796, when it was admitted to the United States as the State of Tennessee. President George Washington appointed William Blount territorial governor, and Rocky Mount became its first capital. The capital was later moved to Blount's residence in the newly laid-out town of Knoxville in 1792.
The collection was purchased by Special Collections in 1974.
