About Tennessee

Tennessee's economy evolved from being a predominantly agricultural society in the 20th century to one that was more diverse. This was made possible by a large federal investment in the Tennessee Valley Authority and Oak Ridge. These cities were established during World War II to house Manhattan Project's uranium enrichment plants for the construction of the first atomic bombs. They were then dropped on Imperial Japan after the war ended. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory was a major center for scientific research after the war. The state was named the element tennessine in 2016, largely because of the contributions of Vanderbilt University and Oak Ridge to its discovery. Tennessee also played a significant role in the creation of popular music forms, such as country, blues, and rock and roll.
