  1. Maybe another reason my Big Daddy James Ditto abandoned the area to Captain Hunt was the snake infestation! I’m glad Huntsville wound up with it’s name – compared to Dittosville or Twickenham!

  2. Mitzi-Travis Wammack, he could have used your help.

  3. With snakes you need all the help you can get lol

  4. The first example of what will later become known as “fake news” – however the pen name the pen and name appears to have written much of what is accepted as convenient Alabama History despite the facts much of it fails the Federal Archives test of veracity.
