    You just can’t beat a good hanging.
     
  3. The last hanging where I grew up took place in 1896 for the Meeks family murders. And they put up a stockade & sold tickets.

    They’re selling postcards of the hanging
    They’re painting the passports brown
    The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
    The circus is in town

  10. Hey, at least they had a wall to sit on. Day laborers these days have to stand in the parking lot at Home Depot. o_O

    Funny, I remember when that song was called "Alice's Restaurant":

  11. Unidentified sailor from the crew of the USS Benton Civil War ironclad gunboat. My maternal great-great-grandfather served on the USS Benton with a crew of 176 men, & I know of no pic of him either.

    Patrolling both the Mississippi River & the Yazoo River the Benton was in the battles at Island No. 10, Memphis, Grand Gulf, & Vicksburg during the 1863 Union siege. The USS Benton was decommissioned in July 1865.
