One entry for one of the coolest older neighborhoods in Knoxville... The neighborhood is nice because riverfront property in it is reserved by knoxville parks and recreation. Favorite spot for walking and running... Much to the dislike of at least some residents probably. It's not far from a Civil War site called "Bleak house". Yes, Bleak house was named after the Charles Dickens novel by the same name. Someday, I'll try to get to Bleak House when it's open, and shoot some photos of the Cannonballs left in the walls, and the drawing of the 3 sharpshooters that were killed by Union cannonballs there.
The battle seems a little deceving to me. Knoxville was never under that strong of confederate control, or it never had that much of a Confederate"backing" by the people anyway. The Union troops were apparently welcomed here once they established control. but I guess that's a story for another day, when I shoot Bleak house.
