The History of Renfroe Station on the Red River, 1780 – Part 1

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – Have you heard the story of the first frontier settlement on the Red River? 

Many times the history beneath our feet here in Montgomery County is not in the forefront of our minds.  It can be easily forgotten that the many places we live, shop, or work every day contain stories from multiple historical periods of Tennessee. In this case, it is the history of westward expansion and the Indian Wars of the 18th century. 

People may wonder why these stories matter.  Many of us were at one time young students who felt history class was incredibly boring and even called it our least favorite subject.  Yet, in truth, it is those who devote some time to the subject in depth who are a very fortunate group of people.  They gain insights and knowledge; they increase their wisdom.

The Opry’s four sets are a combination of well-established Opry members and next wave artists who are hoping to join that exclusive circle.

The National Christmas Tree’s deep History

 

US Capitol Christmas Tree and Other Forerunners to the National (Community) Christmas Tree

US National Park ServiceWashington, D.C. – December 24th, 1913 was the first community Christmas celebration in Washington, D.C. On the East Plaza of the US Capitol on Christmas Eve, the Christmas tree and related pageantry occurred. It was meant as a celebration for all of Washington, rich and poor, young and old, although a special emphasis was placed on the children.1

The forty-five minute program, replete with angel figures in white robes, nativity tableaux, carols, and Boy Scouts waving American flags, was modeled largely on community celebrations in other cities.
