May, 1904: Unknown Negro
Today we learn about a Florida lynching through the pages of the Belvidere Daily Republican (Belvidere, Illinois) dated May 23, 1904:
Mulberry, Fla., May 23.—A negro was found hanging to a tree in the main street of the town, his body riddled with bullets. The crime, if any, committed by him is unknown to the authorities. The case is absolutely mysterious.
Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
