1810: Sullivan in Mississippi

In 1810, Thomas Sullivan arrives at what will later be known as Sullivan's Hollow, in the center of Mississippi, carrying all his possessions and young wife, pregnant with first child. Thomas will eventually sire 21 children and gain a reputation as a fearsome fighter. One of Thomas' fights was said to have lasted a whole day, and ended with the two opponents chewing each others flesh so that their wives had to pry the flesh out of their teeth with jackknives.
