To the south, in the Tennessee River, is Burns' Island, formerly known as Lowery's Island. Here, at the Creek town of Chiaha, DeSoto camped June 5 to 28, 1540, while two scouts were sent north 30 leagues in search of gold. Here the Spaniards first found fenced villages. When they left, 500 carriers were furnished them.
