Sam Davis, James Polk, Phosphate Museum

We had a busy second day on our little Tennessee Jaunt. We did indeed track down the Sam Davis Monument (though his museum is only open on Sundays), boy hero of the Confederacy. He wasn’t born in Pulaski, but this is where he was hanged. Read all about him here. This entire area is full of Civil War history, Davy Crockett connections, and Tennessee Walking Horse farms. We checked out another waterfall, and had a lovely lunch on the square in Columbia and then decided to head home. Oh, and we went through the James Polk House (also in Columbia). It was a good blend of seeing the countryside, getting a taste of the rural Tennessee towns, and experiencing some of the history of the area. All in all, a good excursion.

I’m having some “photo issues” – so I’ll have to post the pictures later – maybe over the weekend. :-/

Today we got ready to move again. We head about 60 miles north tomorrow morning, to Cedar Lake Camp in Livingston, TN. It’s not a long trip, but still everything has to be in its “travel home”. 🙂

Oh, the Phosphate Museum….well, we located it (Mt. Pleasant, TN), and it was even open, but Gary was on the hunt for Lunch, and well, we just passed it by. Sorry!
