Tennessee is a state in the southeastern USA; it is bordered by Kentucky and Virginia in the north, North Carolina in the east, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi in the south, and Arkansas and Missouri in the west. Tennessee is the 16th most populous with 6,829,174 inhabitants in 2019. Its capital and largest city is Nashville. Its governor is Bill Lee.
The state has a humid subtropical climate, with the exception of some of the higher elevations in the Appalachians, which are classified as having a mountain temperate or humid continental climate.
The name Tennessee derives from that of the Cherokee village Tanasi. The Cherokee developed warm relations with English traders, and were initially their allies in the French and Indian War of the 1750s and ’60s. However, as English traders and hunters became land-hungry settlers, the Cherokee came to see them as a threat. Thus began a long period of intermittent conflict, which ended with the final removal of the Cherokee from the state in the 19th century. Tennessee withdrew from the Union near the beginning of the Civil War in 1861 but became the first state to rejoin in 1866.
Until about 1940, Tennessee’s economy was predominantly agricultural, with cotton, tobacco, and livestock as the principal cash products, but since the mid-20th century, its economy has grown mainly in the service sector.
