Hats Off! to Tom Wood who recently placed a couple of articles in the Ledger on both historical and future events. (Read more about the train crash at his website, www.tomwoodauthor.com.) For the Nashville edition, he wrote about the 100th Anniversary (July 9) of the 1918 Great Train Wreck at Dutchman's Curve in Nashville, the deadliest train wreck in U.S. history. For the Knoxville edition, he wrote about that city hosting the 2019 Bassmaster Classic—often called the Super Bowl of fishing tournaments‐next March 15-17.
