A Hill Country Family: Ben and Dovie Greenwood, George, Tom and Kate of Nettleton, 1944

The series, A Hill Country Family, examines a special bill considered in the U.S. House of Representative and the U.S. Senate for the benefit of the Greenwood family of Nettleton, Mississippi. Much of the information within the bill and its attachments of affidavits reads like a time capsule for life in the Hill Country during the 1940s. The tragic accident involving Ben and Dovie Greenwood, George, Tom, and Kate on the evening of March 16, 1944, just outside of Nettleton makes for an interesting lesson about our history and heritage.
