Battle of the Belles

Our friend Gary alerted us to a delicious article reposted in Time magazine about the acrimony between the Garden Clubs here in Natchez in th 1940s. You can read it here. A paragon of humility, Gary wants it known that it wasn't he who found the article, but our friend Ann. We love you anyway, Gary.

When I showed the story to my father today, he told me that they used to have the pageant in the building that used to be the Natchez museum and has now been renovated as the Federal Courthouse.

"There was a piano in there that belonged to the Natchez Garden Club. I remember someone scratched Nazi Garbage Club into it."

Oh, my! Those women HATED each other.
