"“The Tennessee River clearly flows south of the 35th parallel and through Georgia,” Shafer said.


But Tennessee state Rep. Andy Berk said not so fast.


“My first thought was maybe we can settle this over a game of college football, but that would be unfair to the citizens of Georgia,” he said."
:hihi:

Lawmakers Say Part Of Tenn. Belongs To Ga.

Reminds me of the Oklahoma-Texas war fought over the Red River about a hundred years ago.

Meanwhile the Cherokee are going "Hey, look, if we're revisiting old border agreements..."

With so many people making fun of TN an GA, I find it amusing that also, so many people seem to want to fight over the rights to the land. What gives?

I remember a few years back when we were driving from Atlanta to New Orleans through Tennessee ( took the long way round to visit some old classmates). We were driving along I24 and in within the space of a few miles we entered Georgia, and then went back into TN - you know the signs - Leaving TN thank you for visiting - Entering Georgia Welcome - Leaving Georgia, Thank........ Welcome to TN....... You could almost see the second group of signs from where the first were placed. The kids thought it was very funny. From the map it looks like its almost in the same area as the water dispute

Of course that has nothing to do with the border. its just that the interstate goe southwest most of the way till it dips into Georgia and tehn it goes northwest, back into Tennessee to Chattanooga.
