Beware the wrath of an angry woman 1887

The Memphis Commercial Appeal October 31, 2012 Mid-South Memories:

October 31, 1887 “A report spread like wildfire throughout the city that an unidentified housewife had boarded the Somerville accommodation train, brandishing a shotgun and announcing that she was bound for Memphis to search for her errant husband.  As a result the early train last night was crowded with men who appeared to be in the greatest rush to get back to their home and hearth.”
