April 5, 1883: Alexander Williams
Today we learn of a lynching in Mississippi from the Fort Wayne Weekly Sentinel (Fort Wayne, Indiana) dated April 11, 1883:
CHICAGO, April 6—A Vicksburg, Miss., special says that Alexander Williams, colored, arrested for outraging the negress Lena Moss, living on Deer Creek was taken out of jail last night and hanged by a mob.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
