The namesake of the fourth largest city in America, Sam Houston was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia. Houston and his family migrated to Maryville, Tennessee when Houston was a teenager. Houston later ran away from home and spent about three years living with the Cherokee, becoming known as Raven. He served under General Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812, and after the war, he presided over the removal of many Cherokee from Tennessee. With the support of Jackson and others, Houston won the election to the United States House of Representatives in 1823.
