Do any of you in East or West Tennessee get to see the productions done by WNPT, the local PBS station in Nashville?

There's one called Beautiful Tennessee, and another called Tennessee Town Square. The TTS one visits a number of downtown area of Tennessee cities. The Beautiful Tennessee one is about the natural areas in Tennessee.

There's also a couple of other, such as the one about the churches of Nashville. All of these are fairly well done two-hour productions.

I'm taping Tennessee Town Squares now.

I'm looking for a town square, (small town) in Tennessee I'm pretty sure that has a monument of General Basil Duke on the lawn, Cival War General. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I searched really hard but could not find a statue for Basil Hunt. The closest I could find was a statue of his brother-in-law, John Hunt Morgan, in Lexington, KY. Basil Hunt dedicated that statue.
The square in Franklin, TN, has a confederate memorial with a soldier on top that, it turns out, is like many from that time that were "stock" carvings offered by stone-cutting companies back then. Similar carvings appear in quite a few town squares.

Confederate Monument

Hope someone else knows!
