Actors portraying some of Tennessee’s earliest “Volunteers” present the flag at the beginning of “Liberty! The Saga of Sycamore Shoals.” The outdoor historical drama, which is in its 35th year, continues Thursday, Friday and Saturday against the backdrop of Fort Watauga at Sycamore Shoals State Historical Area.

“Liberty! has been going really well,” said Sycamore Shoals Park Manager Jennifer Bauer. “Attendance has been wonderful.”

Bauer said the weather has been a “huge blessing” for the outdoor drama, held at the recreated Fort Watauga at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park. While much of Carter County battled heavy rainfall last week, the storms passed around the park during the time of the drama.

“We haven’t had to cancel any part of the drama,” she said. “Last year, there was heavy rain the first week of the drama and it did affect the schedule of some of the performances.”
