There are many places in Tennessee where huge historic events took place: great battles, momentous meetings, culture-changing artistic movements. But there are many more places where people have lived their everyday lives without having been personally touched by a huge event in their hometown. And so, the history of those places is found in everyday things. That certainly doesn't mean they are not interesting places to visit, as Rob Wilds found out when he visited the town of Arlington.
