This blog started as an attempt to find a lynching for every day of the year. It is a grim part of United States history that I fear too many find easy to shrug away. After two years, I am now focusing on finding more information on the lynchings I have covered as well as posting about lynchings I have not, regardless of excuse given for the lynching.

Brave men do not gather by thousands to torture and murder a single individual, so gagged and bound he cannot make even feeble resistance or defense. Ida B. Wells
