The 16th state that was inducted into the nation, Tennessee has been a part of the country since 1796. One of the narrowest states in the nation, it is only 112 miles wide, while being over 400 miles long. During the Civil War, the state was a part of the Confederate States of America, making it one of the few states that can say they were part of two different countries in their history. The state is home to two major cities that have a longstanding history with both country music and rock and roll: Nashville and Memphis.

There are 95 counties across the state, with two original counties having become defunct. These two counties were absorbed into other counties that are still active. The earliest county was Washington County, established in 1777, and the most recent to be established, in 1879, was Chester County.

The state of Tennessee has the same outline of government as the other states and the Federal government. With the three branches, it is able to democratically take care of any problems that the state may come up against. Because it was once a part of the Confederacy, the state government went through a change around the time of the Civil War, with many of the officials rising up against the federal government. Because of that, they had to adopt new constitutions several times, the last being in 1870.

The Supreme Court of Tennessee consists of five justices, three of which are women and two are men, as of 2015. They are selected by the legislature and serve terms of ten years. In the past, each justice was elected for life. The Supreme Court appoints the Tennessee Attorney General, instead of them being elected.

Offender Search Web Page

The purpose and specifics of the Offender Search Web Page in each state varies. Read the disclosures carefully. Updates to the database could be biweekly, monthly and daily depending on the states Corrections Department schedule. Some searches show offenders incarcerated in the entire prison system including county jails and some only state prisons. Sometimes historical offender data is available and sometimes only current inmate records are listed. Youth and adult offenders are sometimes located on separate search portals.
