Where in the World is Smokey?

Smokey Completes His U.S. Trek with Visit to Mississippi!

Marshall Ramsey is a 1991 graduate of UT’s College of Business Administration. Once a cartoonist for The Daily Beacon, Ramsey is now a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist who works for The Clarion Ledger in Jackson, Miss.

The Ramsey family – Marshall and wife, Amy, and children, David, Daniel and Evan -- recently took Smokey to Vicksburg, Miss., home of the Vicksburg National Battlefield, lots of casinos and the Mississippi River. 

Featured in the photos are the new and old Vicksburg River bridges, the Ramsey family in front the bridges, Marshall Ramsey in front of the Welcome to Mississippi sign, and a sign talking about the siege of Vicksburg.

Ramsey said his great-great-grandfather, J.C. Eckles, fought at Vicksburg before becoming a Methodist circuit rider in North Mississippi. He later moved to Maryville, where Ramsey’s family is from.
