Summary
The collection consists of a photocopy of a letter and enclosures from C.S. Todd. The enclosures describe Isaac Shelby's involvement at King's Mountain
Biographical or historical data
Isaac Shelby was born on December 11, 1750. On October 7, 1780, Shelby led American troops against the British at King's Mountain, a battle in which the Americans were victorious. He was an active participant in the conventions leading up to Kentucky's statehood in 1792 and was a delegate to the state's constitutional convention. Shelby was the first governor of Kentucky, but declined reelection four years later. He retired to his farm until the War of 1812, when Kentucky citizens called upon him to again serve as governor. After his second term, Shelby declined an appointment as Secretary of War. In 1818, he aided Andrew Jackson in creating a treaty with the Chickasaw Indians, which came to be known as the Jackson Purchase. Shelby died on July 18, 1826 at his home.
