February 17, 1901: Isham and Henry Fed

Today we learn about a Mississippi double lynching through the pages of The Evening Herald (Ottawa, Kansas) dated February 19, 1901:

Two Negroes Shot to Death by a Mob.

Macon, Miss., Feb. 19.—Isham and Henry Fed, negroes, were shot to death by a mob six miles from Macon Sunday night. They were charged with burning the barn of L. T. Cole, who lives near Macon.

I found a large number of articles about this lynching; unfortunately, this was the most informative. Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
