Do any of you have any accurate info on the activity that occured on the TN MS state line years ago.
I know there was a book written by Morris and there are other stories told but I was wondering if anyone had stories passed on by parents, uncles, aunts, etc.
I am interested in the stories that occured there.
Some of the players are still alive in corinth. I do know that.
Thanks

There are a few other books, STATE LINE MOB and TOMMY AND ME are the better known. Go by and see Harold at Hamburger Harold's on Fillmore street in Corinth. He or his wife should have plenty of stories. It would be nice to get a book of "real stories" from the people who were actually there. Alot of people just make up stuff just to get the attention. I'm sure most of the stories have been buried with the people that have already passed away.

There was also a book written by Buford Pusser's daugther - Dwana. The book is "Walking On".

You could probably order one to be shipped from "Spice of Life" bookstore in Corinth as they do keep them in stock.

Although I was not around during that time, I've always been intrigued by the stories that I heard growing up in Corinth. Especially seeing many of these (now elderly) "characters" frequently around town. The autor of "Tommy and Me" recently passed away.

I just finished reading "The 12th of August", "The State Line Mob", "Walking on" and "Tommy and Me". Although each have some bias it does make for interesting reading. I tend to lean towards Dwana's book as being the most accurate.

Thanks I may check on that because I would like to get a copy of it.
I read where Blevins passed away.
I would like to talk to some of these characters. I have spent some time in Mcnairy County but not too much in alcorn.
Thanks

look "towhead" if you have a problem with the current sheriff, then why don't you go talk to him or run for sheriff yourself when the election comes up. you might find the job to be tougher than you think. otherwise why not just shut up.

I have read books and seen the movies and they are
so far from the truth they are almost funny..

Please try to contact someone that was "there" when
all of this happened and not someone like Tommy Bivens widow, no disrespect,(who was at home and repeated what she heard). or Harold and his wife who were in the same situation.

Talk to someone who was "there" when these things were happening. There are a few left, if you can get them to talk to you. Most of us don't.
