Here's a little midweek trivia for you:
What state, according to Wikipedia, is the 17th most populous of the 50 United States, furnished more soldiers for the Confederate Army than any other state, and played a critical role in the development of rock 'n roll in early blues music?
Here are a few more clues:
- It was admitted to the union on June 1, 1796 as the 16th state, and
- 215 years later reported a population of 6,403,353.
- Its major cities include Murfreesboro, Clarksville, Memphis, Chattanooga, and Nashville where I'm headed this week to discuss the assurance of 911 functionality in multiline telephone systems.
Of course, the state I am talking about is TENNESSEE.
