Re-enactor Travis Henline will portray Timberlake; Bullet Standingdeer will portray the Cherokee Ostenaco; and Little Hawk will portray interpreter John McCormick. At Fort Loudoun, there will be guided tours of the Little Tennessee Valley, lectures about Timberlake's visit and demonstrations of 18th century map-making techniques. Certified Cherokee guides provided by The Museum of the Cherokee Indian will lead the tours from Fort Loudoun to historic sites at Toqua, Ballplay, Tanasi and Chota, following the footsteps Timberlake himself described in his memoirs.
