The Mississippi Corpse - CyberCorpse 12

From: "Charles Vermont" <cvermont@iocc.com>

Some ideas for your documentary. Greenville, Mississippi, a delta town with an illustrious literary history and a before its time progressiveness: Walker Percy, Shelby Foote, and Hodding Carter III (previous spokesperson for the State Department). Foote is ancient but alive (famous Civil War historian------half Jewish, his grandfather a plantation owner). Might be an interesting vignette based on the commerce of the river.

The Battle of New Orleans: good book by Robert Remini, slaves later freed joining, with Jean LaFitte Pirates, ethnic varieties, and lead by that All American Andrew Jackson-----this battle prefigures in many ways the spirit of America.

There's always Mark Twain and then Melville with The Confidence Man. I haven't read these in many years but I suspect there's something there for you about the Mississippi.
