On the southern end near Dover was Fort Donelson, the first major success for the Union, in 1862, led by Ulysses S. Grant. It earned Grant his nickname "Unconditional Surrener". We are coming across more & more Civil War sites & battlefields.
Came down to Lynchburg yesterday to the site of the Jack Daniels Distillery, did a tasting tour
From their we went on to another distillery, George Dickels, made a similar way but Auchincloss smaller operation. This one wasn't a tasting tour.
We arrived on Nashville this afternoon & went to Centennial Park to see the Parthenon, the world's only full-scale replica of the Greek temple. It was built for an exposition way back when but unfortunately was closed when we arrived so couldn't go in. The weather has been really warm the last couple of days, high 70's & low 80's so decided to walk around & see if we could find some live music. Found one bar so sat & listened for awhile before calling it a night.
We have travelled through some beautiful countryside the past few days, the blossom trees are out in bloom & the trees are starting to regain their leaves.
