From the all-but-forgotten to the never-to-be-forgotten, here are 200 markers along Memphis’ road of history that leads to present day. Memphis — the city established on the bluffs of the Mississippi River and named after an ancient capital on the Nile delta — turns 200 this year.  In recognition of this bicentennial, here are 200 markers along the road of history that led to the present day. The events cited range from the comic to the tragic, from the risible to the world-shaking, from the all-but-forgotten to the never-to-be-forgotten. But they barely scratch the surface of the rich, silty soil that enabled Memphis to become “the Hardwood Capital of America,” to cite just one of the city’s nicknames.  In other words, this is not a definitive Memphis timeline. With a few exceptions, it ignores music and sports (which will be celebrated by this newspaper later in the year with their own bicentennial tributes). You will have complaints about omissions. But we hope you will enjoy or appreciate the inclusions.  Future president Andrew Jackson (pictured), planter and judge John Overton and Revolutionary War officer James Winchester founded Memphis.(Photo: AP...
