For Services Rendered

Nashville, Tennessee, Area

North Carolina had used land (she had no cash) to pay her officers and soldiers for their services in the Revolution...

Yet, none of the men out of the Revolution, no matter how great their sufferings during the rebellion or from Indians after settlement, had known the losses in blood, money, and time, or endured the hardships of the first settlers on the Cumberland. These had come away back in the winter of 1779-1780.... .

John Clendennin was one of those North Carolina officers.
