Law and Politics
Constitution of 1870 (numerous changes since); Senate with 33, House of Representatives with 99 members. Tennessee has 2 Senators and 9 MPs in Congress.
Tennessee stretches from the western edge of the southern Appalachians (Great Smoky Mountains Clingmans Dome 2,025 m above sea level) over the Great Appalachian Valley through which the Tennessee River flows, the Cumberland Plateau and the valley of the lower Tennessee River to the lowlands of the Mississippi, which forms the western border. Tennessee, which is part of the Sun Belt, has a warm temperate climate with long growing seasons (over 220 days). The average rainfall is 1,270 mm per year, with hardly any snowfall. Almost half of the state is forested, the fertile Nashville Basin (180 m above sea level) originally contained bluegrass.
Of the population (2014) 78.9% are white and 17.1% black, others 4.0%. Largest cities are Memphis, Nashville-Davidson, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
The Tennessee Valley Authority had been providing decisive economic impetus since the 1930s: expansion of electricity generation, industrialization. The most important is the chemical industry, as well as mechanical and automotive engineering and the textile industry. The importance of agriculture (cultivation of soybeans, tobacco, cotton, maize; cattle breeding) is declining; Tennessee is the center of American horse breeding. Mining mainly produces coal, zinc and phosphate. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cherokee National Forest, Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, Natchez Trace and Shilo National Military Park as well as the valley of the Tennessee River with its many reservoirs are tourist attractions. In addition, Nashville-Davidson is considered the Mecca of country music and Memphis as the center of blues and jazz.
The first whites explored the Spanish under H. de SotoIn 1540 the area inhabited by various Indian tribes (including the Cherokee, Chikasaw and Shawnee), followed by the French and English in the 17th century. From 1663 Tennessee was part of the English owner colony Carolina. Permanently populated by whites since 1769, the eastern part was organized in the “Watauga Association” in 1772 and achieved a certain degree of independence as the “State of Franklin” (1784–89). The area of Tennessee was ceded to the federal government by North Carolina in 1789, organized as a territory in 1790 and admitted to the union on June 1, 1796 as the 16th state. While the population increased rapidly in the fertile, easily accessible west and large cotton plantations emerged, the mountainous, sparsely populated east developed with v. a. small farms much slower. In the Civil War, Tennessee joined based on the population in the center and in the west, in 1861 the last state to join the Confederate and became the main western theater of war; the eastern part remained loyal to the Union. In 1866, Tennessee became the first southern state to be re-admitted to the Union. It became the scene of violent racial conflicts (the Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866) and remained a stronghold of Protestant fundamentalism. Tennessee was primarily an agricultural state until the 20th century, and industrialization only began with the major projects of the Tennessee Valley Authority (from 1933).
