Running the Blockade: Wild Hogs-- Real Daughter

Some New News About an Old War.

1.  WILD HOGS--  Wild hogs have been reported rooting around the 1,800 acre Vicksburg National Military Park in Mississippi after being forced there because of flooding in 2011.  They were first reported n May 2011.  Removal will be a problem and they can be dangerous, weighing in at as much as 200 pounds and then there are those tusks.

So, be careful out there.

2.  REAL DAUGHTER--  From Jan. 10th Cullman, (Al) Times--Norma Vivian Smith died Jan. 7th at age 88 and is believed to have been the last Real Daughter of the Confederacy in Alabama.

She was the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Denney of Co. H 31st Alabama who was captured June 15, 1864, near Marietta, Georgia, and held prisoner in Rock Island, Illinois.

Her brother, Tyus K. Denney, 91, is believed to be the last Real Son and still lives.
