Tennessee is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by eight states: Kentucky to the north, Virginia to the northeast, North Carolina to the east, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi to the south, Arkansas to the west, and Missouri to the northwest. Tennessee is the 36th largest state in the United States and the 16th most populous, with an estimated population of 6.8 million in 2019. The area that is now Tennessee was first inhabited by Native American tribes, including the Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Shawnee. The first European explorers to visit the area were Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century. In the late 17th century, British and French traders began to explore the area, and in 1763, the British gained control of the region after the French and Indian War. In 1796, Tennessee became the 16th state to join the Union. It was the first state to be admitted to the Union after the original 13 colonies. Tennessee was an important state during the Civil War, and it was the last state to secede from the Union in 1861. After the war, Tennessee was readmitted to the Union in 1866. In the late 19th century, Tennessee experienced a period of rapid industrialization and economic growth. The state was home to several major industries, including textiles, furniture, and tobacco. Tennessee also became a major center for the music industry, with Nashville becoming known as the “Music City.” Today, Tennessee is a major agricultural state, with its main crops being cotton, soybeans, and corn. It is also home to several major industries, including automotive, healthcare, and tourism. Tennessee is also home to several major universities, including the University of Tennessee, Vanderbilt University, and the University of Memphis.
