Description: Ceramic jug with two handles, impressions, and decorative red and green glazes.
Historical Note: Census records and correspondence tell us that Christopher A. Haun was working as a potter in the area around Lick Creek known as Pottertown in upper East Tennessee in 1860. Haun was one of a number of men from Greene County, some of whom were connected to the pottery industry, who were a part of a plot to burn river and railroad bridges to impede the Confederate advance in November 1861. Five of the men were captured and hanged.
