Picture: View from Highland Avenue - Greeneville's streets of history reach out to meet its fields of beauty. Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, this area has been a haven for both rugged frontiersman Davy Crockett and President Andrew Johnson, as well as a wide variety of religious denominations, as evidenced in the many church spires which accent the downtown historic area.
These cards were sent by Glenda who is lucky enough to be based in Greeneville which looks a lovely location as can be seen by the picture above. I would like to thank her for her quick response to my request for post cards and her letter of encouragement which was much appreciated.
Picture: Andrew Johnson relied upon his experience as a tailor and powerful debating skills to become seventeenth President of the United States, he took office when Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. The Homestead, part of the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site, was his home from 1851 until his death in 1875.
