From Wikipedia:
Bleak House is an antebellum Classical Revival style house in Knoxville, TN. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The house was first occupied by Robert Houston Armstrong and his wife, Louisa Franklin. It was built for the couple as a wedding gift by the bride's father, Major Lawson D. Franklin. Robert Armstrong's father, Drury Armstrong, gave them the land. The Armstrongs named the house after Charles Dickens' "Bleak House" novel of the same name. The bricks in the house were molded on-site using slave labor.

The home was used by Confederate Generals James Longstreet and Lafayette McLaws as their headquarters during the 1863 Battle of Knoxville. Three Confederate sharpshooters who were stationed in the house's tower were killed by Union cannonballs. Two of the cannonballs are still embedded in the walls, and Civil War-era sketches of the slain soldiers are displayed on the walls of the tower.

The home now belongs to local Chapter 89 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and is commonly called Confederate Memorial Hall.

William Trousdale was the 13th Governor of Tennessee. The Democrat Lawyer served from 1849-1851, back when they were two year terms. Before that, he was a Brigadier General of the United States Army. His nickname was the "War Horse of Sumner County"
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Trousdale

Today, he is buried at the Gallatin City Cemetery. Other members of his family are buried within the fenced section. I was here a couple of years ago when the pillar of the monument had fallen off, but has since been restored.

A couple of years ago, an associate challenged me to find all of the Tennessee Governor's burial sites. This is #12 in my quest, so I am finally taking it seriously. My list: 1) John Sevier 3) Willie Blount 9) James K Polk 13) William Trousdale 15) Andrew Johnson 17) William G. Brownlow 22) Alvin Hawkins 23) William B Bate 25) John P. Buchanan 35) Austin Peay 36) Henry Horton 44) Ray Blanton.
