Re: “Feud tourism: If Hatfield-McCoys will sell, how about 'Justified'? or Sweet Willie Wine?

I remember the 1969 march of sweet willie wine from west memphis to little rock. We lived right on highway 70 in Devalls bluff, Ark. Sweet willie wine personally stopped and walked to the edge of our yard and asked if he could fill his water jug. I filled his water jug and handed it back to him and he thanked me and shook my hand and continued on west on hwy 70 towards little rock. I remember our school was dismissed for the day and we were told by school officials not to have any part of the march. I will never forget that moment in black history. The state police escorted him all the way to little rock. Would have been awesome to meet him in person again just to ask him if he remembered his water stop in Devalls Bluff also ask him how was crossing the old bridge just before he got to my house.
