|TENNESSEE Map and Symbols - USA|
Wednesday, May 21, 2014
From the another side of the world came the second map of the day, a new US State for my collection (13 down, 37 to go), this time Tennessee, home of Elvis, Davy Crockett and some say, the Simpsons characters (Springfield is on the north, not far from 'Capital City'). Thank you very much Kristy (born, raised and living there with 7 cats and 12 chinchillas!). This postcard took 5 days to arrive!
Tennessee is a U.S. state located in the Southeastern United States, bordered by Kentucky and Virginia to the north, North Carolina to the east, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi to the south, and Arkansas and Missouri to the west. The Appalachian Mountains dominate the eastern part of the state, and the Mississippi River forms the state's western border. Tennessee's capital and second largest city is Nashville but Memphis is the state's largest city. Tennessee's major industries include agriculture, manufacturing, and tourism.
