RE: 20
It was about this time that for the first time Alabama had at least one high school in each of the 67 counties. Due to poor roads and lack of school transportation, many families had to choose which of their children would be lodged in the city where the one high school was located. The other kids missed out since their labor was needed on the farm. Only two southern states had compulsory school attendance laws at that time.

RE: 20
Can you provide a link to the balloon race video? It keeps telling me "An error occurred. Please try again later." I was unable to find it when I searched YouTube for "1920 International Balloon Race" (only found videos of 1925 and more recent races).

Thanks for posting this stuff. I've really enjoyed it.
