Good articlesEdit


Elizabethton,_Tennessee, please review for GA (good article) class. Article might need help with a few red links first, it is well structured and referenced. Current status is B-class. doxTxob 21:52, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

I am thinking that several sections of the Elizabethton, Tennessee Wiki article first needs to be "more fleshed" out pertaining to several history sections (railroad history, rayon mill-textile workers/union historty history, etc.) before GA status --- I would also like to see content pertaining to the Elizabethton city government and the city parks and rec department.
The red link for a non-existing North American Rayon Corporation should be eliminated with the addition of more detail and perhaps image files about the rayon mills section under history (be sure to follow the Tennessee Encyclopedia external links for detailed material references). 15:05, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
