I wonder where the above family is evacuating from? When I read "bushwackers", I immediately think of Missouri/Kansas, but I suppose the term became generic after a while. Coming from a long history of family evacuations, I feel badly for those who had to endure this trauma under any circumstance.

These particular cards were published sometime postwar, so the phrasing had time to percolate through the language.
