Breathes there the man, with soul so dead, 
Who never to himself hath said, 
This is my own, my native land! 
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd, 
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd, 
From wandering on a foreign strand! 
If such there breathe, go, mark him well; 
For him no Minstrel raptures swell; 
High though his titles, proud his name, 
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim; 
Despite those titles, power, and pelf, 
The wretch, concentred all in self, 
Living, shall forfeit fair renown, 
And, doubly dying, shall go down 
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung, 
Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung....

-- Sir Walter Scott in "Lay of the Last Minstrel"

From its Overmountain Men whose march to victory at King's Mountain for the Revolutionary Army to the 80-100 men a day who left their East Tennessee homes, work and families to follow savvy scouts, like legendary Red Fox Ellis, into Kentucky for joining Union forces there, Tennessee's State of Franklin has steadfastly supported and built this country in wholesome education, sustainably lively commerce, military acumen and daring, and in traditional to "cutting edge" craft arts. --jH, 7/4/14
