Tennessee was admitted to the union on June 1, 1796 as the 16th state. What is now Tennessee was initially part of North Carolina, and later part of the Southwest Territory. Tennessee was the last state to leave the Union and join the Confederacy at the outbreak of the U.S. Civil War in 1861 and the first state to be readmitted to the Union at the end of the war. However, citizens fought on both sides of the war with many from Eastern Tennessee being pro-Union. In fact, the state's early Quakers were among the first in the nation who sought to abolish slavery. Today, Tennessee is the 36th most extensive and the 17th most populous of the 50 U.S. states. Its capital and second largest city is Nashville, and Memphis is the state's largest city."
