I got the ones in red:

1. Desdemona
2. The Virginian
3. - a
4. – c

5. Mississippi
6. (Deep) Blue
7. Boris and Natasha
8. Ted Mack

TRUTH !!


I am assuming that the 102 passengers that boarded the Mayflower are not the same 102 that landed, as I am pretty sure at least one baby was born, and at least one person died, but I may be wrong!

I couldn't remember who Emmett Till was until I saw the state.
