There’s a lot of state history not taught to our youth. You’ve probably heard of the Battle of Athens, but only from folks who wanted to share the story. Here’s another piece of history not taught to our kids. But both events are in Tennessee’s Blue Book ( this story on page 42), the book that also contains our state Constitution.
