Every state in the U.S. has symbols to brag about, songs, wild life and flags. I’ll show you some historical landmarks as well.
Tennessee got it’s nickname as the Volunteer State during the War of 1812 because of the prominent role played by volunteer soldiers from Tennessee, especially during the Battle of New Orleans.
I love our state song, Rocky Top by Boudleaux and Felice Bryant.
Nashville is the state capitol. Our capitol building is a beautiful example of Grecian architecture.
Andrew Jackson, lawyer, judge, U.S. representative, was the seventh president of the United States. He is known for founding the Democratic Party and for his support of personal liberty. His nicknames include, “People’s President” and “Old Hickory”. His home, the Hermitage, is just outside Nashville. Anytime I can I take visitors there, and enjoy it each time.
One last landmark and treasure before I go: The Parthenon in Nashville.
