From the Appalachian Mountains in the eastern part of the state, to the Mississippi River on the western border, Tennessee has a lot of Southern charm to share. Everyone knows about Nashville, the state’s capital and the country music capital of America. But did you now that Tennessee furnished more soldiers for the Confederate Army than any other state, and more soldiers to the Union Army than any other Southern state. In the 1940’s, the city of Oak Ridge was established to house the Manhattan Project’s uranium enrichment facilities, helping to build the world’s first atomic bomb. The town was, and is, populated by mostly those with Doctorate Degrees. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the nation’s most visited national park, and is headquartered in Tennessee.
