Il Tennessee is located in the southeast of the United States of America. Its borders are as follows: Kentucky and Virginia to the north, Alabama and Georgia to the south, North Carolina and Mississippi to the east and Arkansas and Missouri to the west.

The name of the state derives from that of the homonymous river, the Tennessee, which to the east runs through the entire territory from north to south and then flows into Alabama and returns to Tennessee in the western part, going up from south to north. This route divides Tennessee into three parts which are recognized both geographically and culturally as distinct areas of the country. In fact, the flag has three stars, one for each part of the territory.

The capital of Tennessee is N.

Historical notes

Tennessee was a place of conquest first by the Spaniards, then by the French and the British. The natives are forced into other regions. Last state to leave the Union, Tennessee becomes a field of bloody battles and after the civil war, some veterans founded the infamous Ku Klux Klan, to deprive the now free blacks to enjoy their rights. Currently the country's economy is based on the textile industry, tobacco, livestock and tourism.

To know

Tennessee is a state that offers wonderful walks by day and pure nightlife. From the countryside villages, where you can still meet snake charmers and keepers of ancient traditions, you pass to the metropolises where concerts, dance halls, clubs with live music are joined by the great record companies.

Memphis it is the city that hosts everything related to the great Elvis Presley, for this is the home of music. But alongside the areas where music artists are celebrated, including Johnny Cashe Isaac Hayes, among elegant buildings and cadillacs on display, Memphis shows its toughness, in suburban neighborhoods that still reflect the desire for redemption of the south.

Another milestone is Nashville. The capital of Tennessee is the cradle and forge of great artists of country music, university and with an economy that focuses on the cultural liveliness of the city.

East Tennessee, on the other hand, allows you to enjoy other landscapes, dominated by rural villages with more relaxed and less hectic pace of life, to visit the city of Chattanooga with a relaxing riverside for walks.
