Must Read History!
“On July 31, 1864. William T. Anderson aka "Bloody Bill" sought to take Huntsville, by luring the militia outside the city. In order to do this he went to the home of Lt. Col. Alexander Denny's elderly father - Judge David Denny. There he hung the old man three times from the gate post, and sent a servant into Huntsville to let Denny know he had his father. Lt. Col. Denny had to be held back from rushing out with men to his father's rescue as the townspeople suspected it was a setup for an ambush. Once Anderson realized the militia was not coming he left Denny's father for dead.”
