Upon further research I have discovered that Tennessee offers "more than 90 specialty license plates for Tennessee motorists to display on their registered motor vehicles." One of these is the "Sons of the Confederate Veterans" plate which is what I saw the other day on the truck.

Once again, the South is weird.

I can't decide if I want a weird artsy fish plate or a small mouth bass plate. It's a tough call.

Oh, go for the Tennessee Walking Horse plates! lol

I saw some of those at a horse show a couple weeks ago. It was funny to see how they walk, but they are well mannered horses.

Tennessee sure likes it's children and children's hospitals.

Did you know that you qualify to become a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy? Your great-great-great grandfather Asa M. Byrd, along with one of his brothers, was conscripted into the Confederate Army at Lexington, Missouri. He was later captured by the Union and did POW time in Texas. If I remember right, he spent the last part of his life in a nursing home for veteran's of the Civil War, prior to being moved to a state hospital in St. Joseph, Missouri where he died of a stroke.

Of course, though, you had relatives on the Union side also...

So does this mean I'm eligible to get a confederate flag license plate? Cuz I don't think I want one...

Just think Golda, one wrong move and you could be MAKING those license plates.

I would skip the confederate plate. Perhaps they have one that gives a few bucks to a good cause...such as your favorite school library!
