Little Tennessee River

Little Tennessee River

      river rising in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northeastern Georgia, U.S., and flowing about 150 mi (240 km) north and northwest, through southwestern North Carolina and across Tennessee to the Tennessee River just below Fort Loudoun Dam. Tennessee Valley Authority dams on the Little Tennessee include Calderwood in Tennessee and Cheoah and Fontana dams in North Carolina. Ft. Loudoun, built in 1756–57 on the river's southern bank, was named for the Earl of Loudoun, British colonial commander; it was destroyed by Indians in 1760.
