    Lew Wallace, the Civil War Union general and author of "Ben Hur," once wrote this about Dover, Tenn.: "It was a village unknown to fame, meager in population, architecturally poor." Little has changed in 155 years. Located 67 miles west/northwest of Nashville on the Cumberland River, this town would in most cases be bypassed by people on their way to the home of country music.

    No good roads in that area today. I mean the quickest way down for me is via secondary roads. I know the Superintendent there. A good college friend of mine. Yes I like the area and the park. Not so far from me, not a long way from Dixie Gun Works.
