Tennessee’s original constitution is going on display for the first time

I might just have to take a drive over to Nashville next weekend.

If you don’t get a chance to see the document, you can console yourself by visiting the spot where the state’s first constitutional convention hammered the thing out back in 1796.  It’s a parking lot at the corner of Gay St. and Church Ave in downtown Knoxville.  That’s what I’ve read, anyway.  Somebody really needs to put up a marker or something.
