February 8, 1893: Frank Harrel and Willie Felder
Today we learn about a double lynching in Mississippi through the pages of The Public Ledger (Maysville, Kentucky) dated February 10, 1893:
Two Negro Boys Lynched.
MAGNOLIA, Miss., Feb. 10.—Frank Harrel and Willie Felder, two Negro boys, arrested for robbing and burning Lee Robinson's store, at Dickery, were lynched by a mob near the scene of their crime. The proof against the Negroes was positive; they made a full confession and produced the goods stolen by them.
Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
