Yesterday’s answer:
C   Cracked his whip at them
Annie Kershaw remembered that in 1865, she and a group of children found a grove of “potawatomi plum” trees and stopped to feast on their find. They were about a mile behind the company when the company captain, William Willis, rode back on his horse. Willis then drove the children ahead of him, cracking his “black snake whip at us, and I tell you we never strayed behind again.”
