    Gravity and how the mountains are sloped causes all of the rivulets in E. Tennessee that go into the Tennessee River to go that way. The river is formed by the confluence of the French Broad out of N. Carolina and the Holston. It flows SSw towards Chattanooga and then turns more westward into N. Alabama until it reaches the area just south of Savannah, Tennessee and then it goes basically north west of Clarksville, Tennessee and empties into the Mississippi at Paducah, Kentucky.

    If you drink Tennessee River water for the majority of your life, you will be much smarter than other people and know this crap
