Item # 682409

June 09, 1900

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, June 9, 1900

* Columbus, Muscogee County, Georgia
* Simon Adams (Negro) lynching - hanging

The front page has a small one column heading: "A Negro Lynched" (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.
Complete with 8 pages, 19 x 14 1/2 inches, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes, generally very nice.
