Discover how the society encouraged women since they shared authority and responsibility because they believed that men and women were created equally.

Leave Louisville behind and head south to a distillery that has been run by the same family since 1875! Open-pollinated white heirloom maize is used at the distillery, which is located in the heart of Kentucky's bourbon region, to produce whiskey with a tad lighter flavour. Continue to Mammoth Cave National Park after your visit to see the world's longest cave system, which spans more than 400 miles. You'll discover an incredible subterranean environment filled with caves, natural cathedrals, and rock formations here. After spending some time exploring this unsettling environment, continue on to Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country music. The "honky tonks" of the city are well-known; these are lively taverns, clubs, and pubs that provide live music far into the night.Settling into your accommodation this evening will allow you to join the group for supper at a Nashville-style restaurant where line dancing is popular.
