Here are some humorous epitaphs from the western part of the United States
Some Boothill epitaphs:
Carson City, Nevada, epitaph of a horse thief.
He found a rope and picked it up,
And with it walked away.
It happened that to the other end
A horse was hitched, they say.
They took the rope and tied it up
Unto a hickory limb
It happened that the other end
Was somehow hitched to him.
1884 epitaph in Phoenix, Arizona, graveyard:
“Here lies John Coll, a son of toll,
Who died on Arizona soil,
He was a man of considerable vim,
But this here air was too hot for him.”
Prior to statehood, Alabama was a vast wilderness with a large Native American population. It is only natural that when new immigrants from other states arrived, conflicts over the land would arise. Soon, these small conflicts exploded into war.
Alabama Footprints Confrontation is a collection of lost and forgotten stories that reveals why and how the confrontation between the Native American population and settlers developed into the Creek-Indian War as well as stories of the bravery and heroism of participants from both sides.
