December 28, 1906: Alex McDonald

Asheville Citizen (Asheville, N. C.) dated December 29, 1906:

NEGRO IS LYNCHED AT BIRMINGHAM

ATHENS, Ala., Dec. 28.—Alex. McDonald, a Birmingham negro, who attempted the death of Policeman Henry Nichols, at Elmont, this county, injuring him slightly yesterday, was pursued by a hundred men and brought back to town with a rope around his neck, and his body riddled with bullets, more than a hundred shots being fired into him. The body disappeared mysteriously after the affair.

Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope to leave you with something to ponder.
