The Dead Pigeon River Did Champion International's Dioxin Pollution
Create a "Widowsville" in North Carolina?
Even as a five-year-old in 1947, Mary Woody knew there was something wrong with the Pigeon River, which flowed behind her great-grandfather's home in Hartford, Tennessee. "It had foot-high white foam floating along the top, was brown in color and smelled like rotten eggs," Woody says. "But now it's not the smell that bothers us; it's the dioxin."

"When an individual is seen gliding through the woods and close to the observer, it passes like a thought, and on trying to see it again, the eye searches in vain; the bird is gone."

Slowly the passenger pigeons increased, then suddenly their numbers
Became enormous, they would flatten ten miles of forest
When they flew down to roost, & the cloud of their rising
Eclipsed the dawns. They became too many, they are all dead
Not one remains...
This exhibit was created with specimens from the Museum's collection.
Like the Dodo, it is a vivid reminder of extinction caused by humans.
How far may we go astray? It seems that the military pigeons of those days were stronger & had a greater tenacity than our modern race pigeons. The military pigeons had to accomplish their duty in the most difficult circumstances : bad weather, flying at nig different home lofts, shower of bullets ... All pigeons (AB) used during the wars are heros. Pigeons are more trustworthy than modern technology. We can take them everywhere we go, they will always accomplish their duty. Animals never betray.
A complete list of pigeons awarded "THE DICKEN MEDAL"
Pynchon fans, you might refer to his treatment of the extermination
of the Dodo in Gravity's Rainbow.
