I just posted some photos from Knoxville. The Historical Society Museum is great. We went to Fort Dickerson and Bleak House also on this trip. Much of Knoxville area sites have been built over, but I'll see if they will send me the walking tour map, I'd like to do it. I'm planning to be there two more times this year. Sam Houston's birthplace is out in Blount County. We enjoyed the Blount Mansion. The Mabrey Hazen house is great. I posted photos on CWT of it. And Bethel Confederate Cemetery is across the street.In addition to the excellent recent posts about the Knoxville area, I'd recommend the McClung Museum on the campus of UT and the great East TN Historical Society museum downtown. The Historical Society also has a free walking tour map of CW sites around town. Plenty of great spots around there for lunch and libations as well!
