Everything You Need to Know About the State of Tennessee (TN)

Tennessee became the 16th state of the combination in 1796. It is presently 112 miles wide but stretches 432 miles from the Appalachian Mountains border with North Carolina in the east to the Mississippi River boundaries with Missouri and Arkansas in the west. Tennessee’s two largest cities, Memphis and Nashville are recognized as the middle of blues and country music, correspondingly, and have played host to the likes of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Muddy Waters, Johnny Cash, B.B. King and Dolly Parton. Memphis is also well-known for its barbecue and hosts the well-attended “Memphis in May” barbecue competition each year.

Future president Andrew Jackson founded the city of Memphis on May 22, 1819, along with John Overton and James Winchester. They named it after the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis—meaning “place of good abode”—which was located at the head of the Nile River Delta.
William Strickland, the engineer and architect of the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville, died in 1854 during the building’s construction. At his request, he was entombed within the structure’s walls.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park is America’s most visited national park, attracting more than 9.4 million people in 2010. Well-known as the “Salamander Capital of the World,” the park hosts the most diverse inhabitants of salamanders in the world: 30 different species.
Memphis, Tennessee, is home to Graceland, Elvis Presley & rescue’s former estate. It is one of the most visited personal residences in America–second only to the White House.

I had a seamless first-time vehicle transport experience with Ship A Car, inc. I know that is largely because of Bob Moran, the coordinator who helped me. Personable, patient, professional, always willing to answer further questions, he gave me excellent customer service and I greatly appreciate it! I was so nervous and dreading getting started but Bob put me at ease and I quickly gained great confidence in the company because of his easy and knowledgeable communication. In addition, the driver dispatched to move my car from Los Angeles To St Petersburg, Florida was punctual, called when he was supposed to, prior to pickup/delivery, and made great time completing the transport. He picked up Monday around 2 pm and delivered at 9 am on that Friday. I have nothing but praise for Ship A Car, Inc. and enthusiastically recommend them!
