Inscription. Fort Loudoun played a significant role in helping Great Britain secure the trans-Appalachian region from France during the Seven Years War, or as it is known in America, the French and Indian War. As the first planned British fort in the "Overhill" country, Fort Loudoun, for a while helped ally the powerful Cherokee Nation to the English cause and block further French penetration of the area from the west.
