Text:

The corner where Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee meet, 12 miles, was established June 1, 1818 by joint commissioners from Tennessee and Georgia. a permanent stone marker was erected on Nickajack Mountain, a mile south of the Indian Village of Nickajack, then stadning on the banks of the Tennessee River. This point was suppoed to have been placed on the 65th parallel, but a recent survey shows it to be about a half a mile south of this latitutde.
