“I feel like I took a trip back to ancient time when I recently visited Nashville, Tennessee.   Nashville considers itself the Athens of the South and proudly displays and an exact replica of the Parthenon from Athens, Greece.  It’s an amazing structure to see.  To appreciate the size of the columns, notice how small I am standing next to them!  Also pictured is a huge replica statue of the Greek goddess Athena which stood in the original Parthenon.  Of course, the structure suffered great damage in wars against the Persians, but much of the real Parthenon still stands in ruins in Athens.”
