” A 78-year-old Mississippi man has died two weeks after he woke up in a body bag at a funeral home after being mistakenly pronounced deceased, a coroner said.
Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard said Walter Williams died at his home in Lexington around 1 a.m. Thursday. The cause was not released.
Williams’ story went viral after he was pronounced dead Feb. 26. Workers at Porter and Sons Funeral Home were getting ready to embalm him when Williams started to move.
The father of 11, grandfather of 15, and great-grandfather of six had gone into hospice in late February because of congestive heart failure. He was declared dead by a coroner the first time when neither the coroner nor others, including nurses, could find a pulse.”

Been traveling so posting has been light , but as promised here is an unedited photo collection of this year’s re-enactment of the battle at Bloody Angle which presaged the British fighting retreat back to Boston . This post will have some stills and the following post will contain a crude video of some of the action . Please be kind as I acknowledge that I am NO photojournalist .
On second thought , it will take too long to upload them all on this post so I think that I will create a new page when time permits . In the meantime enjoy these samples and watch the video in the next post . Once again this is a crude attempt to offer up some eyewitness fun . Forgive me .
April 19, 1775 , the battles of Lexington and Concord : “On this date in 1775, the first battle of the Revolutionary War commenced. Today, in 2012, let us start our own revolutionary war – not a war of violence against a nation, but a war against ourselves – against our own cynicism.
We know the future is uncertain, as it always will be, but let us look at it with opportunity, a chance to rise above the cynical nature of politics, the cynical facade of knowledge, the cynicism that is far too easy to seep into all our lives. The future is full of possibilities. Seeking it out and making the most of our opportunity is the true form of revolution.
Let our Revolutionary War commence today!”
