This restored map of Tennessee is the 1832 edition, which is the first created from actual surveys. Early American cartographer Matthew Rhea is credited, and the map was drawn for the Tennessee Gazetteer. Officially instated into the union in 1796 as the 16th state, Tennessee?s rich history reaches back to pre-colonial times. The states significance in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars cannot be diminished and any fan of American history will appreciate the significance of this first depiction of the true boundaries of Tennessee.
On Tennessee?s eastern border the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has attracted millions of tourists annually since its dedication in 1940 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This shared border with North Carolina also contains southern portions of the Appalachian trail, considered the longest through hike in the world.
