I too would like to know more about Unionist activity in North Mississippi, especially in eastern Monroe County near the Alabama border. I grew up in Parham (about half way between Amory,MS and Detroit, AL) and heard community legends about how Unionists avoided being "drafted" by the Southern units by hiding in a special cemetery plot that was really an underground room. Further, is the region known as the "Freedom Hills" in NE MS and NW AL the epicenter of unionist activity in that part of the South?

Perhaps Mr. Mallard can be induced to join us here at the Southern Unionist Forum.
