Additional Details:
Near Cowarts, N.C., stands Judaculla Rock inscribed with wierd markings and drawings. The rock is embedded deeply in the ground so its thickness is unknown, but it is about 40 feet in circumference. Across the face of the rock are many carvings made by Indians of a past age. One resembles a balsam tree; one o horned owl; another one like an Indian wigwam - and for this reason this historical rock has long been an object of great interest in Indian lore. There are several legends in regard to this rock, but a Cherokee Chieftain has made a study of the carvings, and pronounces them to be a peace-record treaty between the Cherokee and Catawba Indians
