Kentucky Lynchings

In this book I include stories about lynchings near my home town of Bowling Green, Kentucky as well as lynchings in the four Kentucky counties where my ancestors primarly lived. These include Warren, Logan, Daviess, and Mason. Although none of these lynchings occurred in my lifetime they would have formed the culture in which my ancestors were raised and thus impacted my parents and my childhood. It is my hope in revisiting these dispicable events that the hearts and souls of those filled with hate may soften and be replaced with love and tolerance of all reglardless of their race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.

Extensive sources are included as footnotes and an all-name index is also included.
