History[edit]

For the decade preceding his death in 1792, Dragging Canoe lived at Running Water, a Chickamauga Cherokee town. Railroad tracks, Whiteside train tunnel and Whiteside trestle 1863 make Whiteside a significant location in the passage through the Tennessee River valley from Chattanooga to points west.
