The Great Warrior's Path, or "Athawominee," was the centerpiece of Indian civilization east of the Mississippi River.  Its many braches originated in New York and Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and in the Carolinas.  It coalesced in Southwest Virginia and passed through Cumberland Gap into Kentucky, where it again subdivided.  Athawominee's western branches traversed Kentucky all the way to the Mississippi, and its northern branches  went on into the Old Northwest Territory -- the land between the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers.  For the Indians that used it, Athwominee was not only, and perhaps not primarily, an avenue to war, but was a means of communication, and above all, a route of commerce.  It simply was the thread that held the Indian civilization east of the Mississippi River together.  Later, it was the most significant route of emigration for settlers moving from the East to the interior of the continent.  The only trail of comparable historic significance in American is the Oregon Trail.
