On this classic episode of DragonKing Dark, host Karl Stern takes a look at a local legend from the Appalachian foothills. Aunt Jenny Johnson lived during the Civil War era in the deep south and had no interest in she nor her sons fighting a war they had no part in. They were a poor family who owned no slaves and wanted left alone. The Confederate Home Guard showed up and her son was killed. Aunt Jenny vowed revenge and got it. This is her story and the story of the struggle of the hill people during the Civil War.
