State description

Tennessee is a US state located in the east of the country, one of the most popular among tourists. It is famous for its majestic mountains and incomparable lakes, a huge number of historical sites and a rich cultural heritage. Major tourist destinations are the state capital of Nashville (world music center), Memphis, known as the death site of Elvis Presley, and the Gatlinburg Resort Center.

Tennessee was formed on June 1, 1796 and became the 16th US state. However, this land was inhabited 12,000 years ago by the predecessors of the Muskogee and Cherokee Indians, while Europeans first appeared here much later, only in 1540. Tennessee actively participated in many hostilities in the country, often becoming a field of fierce battles. This was especially evident during the Civil War, since the state is located literally on the “equator” of the United States.
