Cordele GA Negro lynching......

Item # 581394

May 23, 1918

THE MORNING STAR, Wilmington, North Carolina, May 23, 1918  This 10 page newspaper has one column headings on the front page: "Georgia Mob Storms Jail And Seizes Negro" and "Starts to Scene of Murder of Farmer's Wife--Sid Johnson Killed in Battle With Posse" which tells of the lynching of James Cobb at Cordele, Georgia.

Other news, sports and news of the day. Usual browning, little margin wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
