DESCRIPTION

State of Tennessee "Agriculture and commerce" Tennessee is a state in the south-central United States. It is bordered by Kentucky and Virginia to the North, North Carolina to the East, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi to its South, and across the Mississippi River, Arkansas and Missouri in the West. The state has many sites of historic interest, including the Hermitage, home of Andrew Jackson, the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site, Shiloh National Military Park, and Fort Donelson and Stones River national battlefields. Part of the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park is also in Tennessee. The Natchez Trace National Parkway generally follows the old Natchez Trace. Nashville is the capital and the second largest city. The largest city is Memphis. Although Tennessee is now primarily industrial, with most of its people residing in urban areas, many Tennesseans still derive their livelihood from the land. The state's leading crops are cotton, soybeans, and tobacco; cattle, dairy products, and hogs are also principal farm commodities. Tennessee's leading mineral, in dollar value, is stone; zinc ranks second (Tennessee leads the nation in its production). Industry is being continually diversified; the state's leading manufactures are chemicals and related products, foods, electrical machinery, primary metals, automobiles, textiles and apparel, and stone, clay, and glass items. Aluminum production has been important since World War I.
