The Hermitage will have to close on what was expected to be a day of celebration for Andrew Jackson's 250th birthday. But the museum's CEO says they don't mind shutting down for the expected visit by President Trump on Wednesday, which will be the first by a sitting president in 35 years.

The gathering was not quite as big as organizers would have liked, but a hearty crowd — wearing "Make America Great Again" hats and robed in red, white and blue — showed their support for President Trump outside the Tennessee capitol Saturday. The event coincided with similar rallies in cities across the country, including Knoxville.

Donald Trump's inauguration will be followed by hundreds of rallies around the country, including in downtown Nashville on Saturday. That march, called Power Together TN, is largely led by women and expected to draw thousands.

And for many participants, their political activism began as a backlash to Trump's election.

A decision by the Nashville Public Library is looking prophetic this week.

Months ago, officials chose U.S. Rep. John Lewis’s graphic novel about the Civil Rights Movement — called March — for this year’s citywide read. Now the three-part memoir has skyrocketed in popularity following a feud between Lewis and President-elect Donald Trump.
