Tennessee Topography

Tennessee is derived from the name of a Cherokee village.  The Great Smoky Mountains, dominate eastern Tennessee, and their foothills gradually descend to the Cumberland Plateau and fertile floodplains in western Tennessee.  Years ago, the TVA harnessed the Tennessee River for hydroelectric power, and its dammed lakes are popular recreational areas.  The Mississippi River runs south along the state's western edge.  Great Smoky Mountain National Park as well as Chickamauga, Shiloh, and Chattanooga National Military Parks are important landmarks.
