King Charles II of England included this territory in the Carolina grants made in 1663 and 1665. Following French explorations, Englishmen James Needham and Gabriel Arthur explored the region in 1673 and visited Cherokee Indian villages. The area went to the British following the French and Indian War and subsequently, pioneers moved into the area. After numerous disputes with North Carolina, Tennessee was officially organized as the "Territory of the U.S. South of the River Ohio" in 1790.
