June 25, 1900: Jordan Hines

Today we learn about a lynching in Georgia through the pages of The Atlanta Constitution (Atlanta, Georgia) dated June 27, 1900:

TAKEN FROM HIS BED TO DEATH

Unknown Men Kill a Negro at Molena.

Molena, Ga., June 26.—(Special.)—Jordan Hines, a young negro was pulled from his bed last night, taken about a mile from his home and shot to death by unknown parties. So far no cause for the killing is known.


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