1. I am not sure which game it was. 2. I cannot speak about raising fighting roosters now because I have been out of the area for 30 years but I know that there were several families from that area that were in the business. Now of course it is illegal. I do not know if they had any Potts White legs like the ones that are mentioned in the journal as much like the stick game, cockfighting was not a sport for women. 3. Lots of the recipes especially the different kinds of bread listed were used in the area when I was growing up. I fixed a pork pie following the recipe in the journal and could not stomach it as it had too much fat. Those days people had to eat food high in calories and it is perfect for that but I think that like persimmons it must be a taste that you have to get use to in order to like it. 4. I have eaten raccoon and there were many that ate both raccoon and opossum in the Potts Creek area. I have heard of people eating snakes but have never tried it nor do I know of any in the area that still eat it. What people have to keep in mind is that the people in the area had to eat the foods that they could get. I ate lamb and goat growing up but never had horse until we visited Europe but I do remember some of the older members of that community talking about eating it. I also had family in the area that ate groundhog.
