Storyboard Text

  • We had lived in some pretty scrappy places back in the desert, but Mom said Welch was the fightingest town she'd ever seen. 
  • Garbage! Garbage! Y'all are a bunch of garbage!
  • Many fights broke out in Welch, West Virginia. Whatever the reason, boys, girls, men, and women liked to fight. 
  • When Jeannette and her siblings fought, they fought as a team. Their most memorable fight  was the victorious Battle of Little Hobart Street against Ernie Goad and his gang. 
  • Brian came up with a plan to defeat Ernie and his gang, his plan included a homemade catapult. They shot Ernie with rocks from the catapult, the gang fell apart and ran away. Jeannette and Brian chased them away while doing a victory dance. 
  • One night Jeannette woke up to the sound of her dad stumbling around in the darkness. His face and hair were matted with blood. 
  • Rex had gashes on his arm and head. Jeannette cleaned the wounds and tried to help him. Rex insisted on Jeannette giving him stitches with thread from a sewing box, Jeannette tried, but couldn't bring herself to do it. 
  • The next day, Rex was asleep when Jeanette left the house and wasn't home when she came back.
