    According to Geisinger, the border between Georgia and Tennessee  was “established at the 35th parallel of north latitude and would have been located on the northernmost bank of the Tennessee River at Nickajack” – a lake connected to the river. Geisinger says that two representatives, one from each state, who, in 1818, drew the border line, got the location of the line wrong. He argues that the line the two men drew is too far to the south, at some places by more than a mile, thus giving Tennessee control over territory, and water, which rightfully belong to Georgia.
