Featured Facts

The “Volunteer State” of Tennessee was the 16th state admitted to the American Union on June 1, 1796.

Here are some quick facts about this dynamic state:

  • Capital City:  Nashville
  • Bird:  Mockingbird
  • Motto:  Agriculture and Commerce

One of Tennessee’s most famous citizens was Davy Crockett, the famous frontiersman and Congressman.  He was born in 1786, and he was well-known for his exploits at the Battle of the Alamo during the Texan march toward independence from Mexico in 1836.

The most visited national park in the United States has been the Great Smoky Mountains.  The park’s name was derived from the smoke-like bluish haze that was often seen above its mountains.

The city of Nashville has been America’s country music epicenter for many years.  Since 1925, the Grand Ole Opry has been the longest, continually-running live radio program in the land.  A visit to the the historic Ryman Auditorium will create  a memorable visit for any country music fan.

Answer to Brain Teaser Question

12 stamps

You may have multiplied 2 x 12 to get 24.  But a dozen stamps is 12 stamps, no matter how much each is stamp is worth.

  1. Yes! I got the trivia question. And I love the photos of Nashville. We visited it many years ago…wonderfully welcoming city. But I must say we didn’t go for the night life, just as tourists to see all the daytime sights.
