Welcome to Tennessee!

A few facts about the U.S. state that I live in.

The name "Tennessee" comes from the Cherokee Indian language.
Tennessee was the 16th state admitted into the United States of America.
Currently, it ranks as the 17th most populous state in the union.
This state is bordered by Kentucky and Virginia to the North, North Carolina
to the East, Arkansas and Missouri to the West,and Georgia, Alabama, and
Mississippi to the south.
