Item # 656278

December 20, 1934

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, December 20, 1934

* Shelbyville Courthouse Square Historic District - Tennessee
* Lynching mob burns down after Negro is transferred


The front page has a great banner headline: "SOLDIERS KILL 2 IN LYNCH MOB" with subheads that include: "BALKED, RIOTERS DYNAMITE, BURN COURTHOUSE" and more. (see) First report coverage continues on page 2 with a small related map.  Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 36 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the spine.
