The only thing that threw me about the story was the pronunciation of Roswell. It's pronounced RAHS-well, not ROSE-well.
Perhaps the pronunciation has changed since the 19th century?
(Not that the narrator is likely to be trying for historical accuracy; it's just that place name pronunciations change a lot more than people think over time)
Only if the original pronunciation was more British than southern. And coming from the mouth of a woman born and raised in the south, I would find a British pronunciation out of place.
This is probably not something everyone had to deal with, but I had to rewind a few times intermittently because I was spending time trying to figure out where the heck they were talking about, since the 'Hooch isn't that long when you add in that they went "down" from the plantation to Atlanta.
