Georgia Wants to Occupy Tennessee

Georgians must read Catholicgauze because a proposal in the state’s legislature calls for the annexation of the lost land given to Tennessee by geographical error.

I am not sure how this could be done without a) the unlikely event of federal government intervention and a treaty between the two states or b) the even more unlikely event of Georgia sending its national guard to occupy the sliver of Tennessee.

(Note: Hmm, the author of the
American Surveyor article which is the origin for the original post is from Georgia, perhaps it we are seeing the beginning of a cabal to occupy Tennessee! Tennessee bloggers like Instapundit should be up in arms)

Seeing how this is SEC territory--what are the odds that this gets settled next fall when the Dawgs play the Vols?

I found your blog from a weird search. I am currently writing a children's series - the 50 states - giving facts and trivia things and clues to each state where the kids have to guess the state based on all the info given. I would like it if, as the books come out, you could host a virtual book tour or something for the launch. I am hoping the first one will come out about September and one a month after that for the next 5 years. We will have to see. Good blog (even though my stories are concentrating on the United States, it can never hurt to learn about other places through geography).
