Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Genealogy research led the author to stories about lynchings near his home town in Kentucky. Further research uncovered two distant cousins who participated in hangings, one in a lynching and the... More > other on the jury of the last public hanging in the United States. The author's goal in revisiting this shameful period in our history is to bring together in one work the details of the lynchings in which his ancestors were involved and those that occurred near the locations where he was raised and spent the formative years of his youth. These include Warren, Logan, Daviess, and Mason Counties. Although none of the lynchings discussed occurred in the author's lifetime, they helped form the culture where he was raised and that culture became part of who he was and is today. It is the author's hope that in revisiting these events the hearts and souls of those filled with hate may soften and be replaced with love and tolerance of all regardless of their race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.< Less
