SOUTHERN CULTURE BEFORE ELVIS PRESLEY AND LYNYRD SKYNYRD

In a magazine from the '80s called Southern, there was once a cartoon series entitled "Little Known Chapters in Southern History."  Here is the caption for one of them:

Add to that the confusion of the accompanying drawing--O'Connor reading stiffly while JB kneels, shouting at her feet.
