1899 Maysville, Kentucky Negro lynching...
Item # 680150
December 06, 1899
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Dec. 6, 1899
* Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky
* Richard Coleman - Negro lynching
* Burning at the stake by "Regulators"
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "A KENTUCKY HORROR" with subheads. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper. Rare as such.
Complete with 8 pages, a few small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
