Also see . . . Fort Nashborough's Battle of the Bluff. In the fort, a pack of fifty hunting dogs were running madly around the fort enclosure wanting to get at the Indians. Charlotte, wife of Colonel James Robertson, seeing what was happening ordered the gates to be opened to let the dogs out. The dogs ran down the hill to defend their masters and attacked the war party. The dog attack distracted the Indians and gave the settlers the break they needed. Carrying their wounded they hurried to the fort. (Submitted on March 4, 2014, by Sandra Hughes of Killen, Usa.)
