The Tennessee Town That Was Founded Before The Civil War And Is Packed Full Of History

The beautiful state of Tennessee was officially founded in July of 1796, a golden day in history for the United States of America. It’s when the land of rolling hills and rushing rivers, craggy mountaintops and tree-encrusted plateaus officially became part of the Union. Still, every state needs its oldest city, its staunchest ally, and the town of Jonesborough pre-dates the state itself as well as the famed War Between the States.
