Memphis Bicentennial: Here are 200 Bluff City historical facts

From the all-but-forgotten to the never-to-be-forgotten, here are 200 markers along Memphis’ road of history that leads to present day. Memphis — the city established on the bluffs of the Mississippi River and named after an ancient capital on the Nile delta — turns 200 this year.  In recognition of this bicentennial, here are 200 markers along the road of history that led to the present day.

But we hope you will enjoy or appreciate the inclusions.  Future president Andrew Jackson (pictured), planter and judge John Overton and Revolutionary War officer James Winchester founded Memphis.(Photo: AP...
