The Marshall was attempting to control 4 kids who were on a 3 day drunken spree. He was a good man trying to keep the peace as best he could. His family suffered and tried to get past the event. The town itself was never the same afterward. To this day the event is still remembered, as it should be, in the town of Guin, AL.

We ask that God bless his memory and forever give him peace.
