    Greetings Al — Thanks for sharing this one as well as the Woodworth’s earlier talk on J B Hood. It seems that whole “Hood was on laudanum” nonsense has finally been put to rest.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Mike. Unfortunately, my experience is that these myths never completely die off. Zombie myths continue to pop up all over the place.
      See you at the CWI.
