"Massacre at Moniac Crossing" is fiction based on fact. In 1904, at a turpentine camp, in North Florida, the residents at the sleepy crossing boarded a train to St. Augustine for a day picnic and sight-seeing trip. By day's end, when everybody boarded the train again to return home, the men, loaded up in the smoking car, started quarreling and fighting, which led to their own civil war incarnate.
