The History Of This Long-Lost State In Tennessee Will Truly Amaze You

Tennessee is full of history, from the early adventurous settlers to the modern-day history that is made every day on Music Row in downtown Nashville. While many Tennesseans know the history of the state, not many know that there was once another, independent state that formed in the hills of East Tennessee. While it was short-lived, the State of Franklin had a fascinating existence, and you can still visit some of its landmarks today.
