Every city has that one former resident that they just wish everyone would forget. For Nashville that person was William Walker. No, he wasn't a failed country artist, (that would be so much better) he WAS a monster and a racist who wanted to take over a country south of the border. And he somehow managed to convince a bunch of the 1850's versions of frat boys to join him on his expedition. He has some successes and failures and (spoiler alert) ends up on the wrong, or right, side of a Honduran firing squad. So join us today for a history lesson about one of Nashville's more despicable natives. Enjoy?
