Judge Lynch's Court: Mob Justice in Maryland During the Age of Jim Crow, 1860s - 1930s
From a list of lynchings known to have taken place in various Maryland counties between the 1860s and the 1930s, the names listed below uncover and document the events as recorded in the press. When at all available, the local press was used, moving out to the more regional presses only as a fallback option. The dates listed for each lynching incident are fairly accurate (+/- 10 to 12 weeks). Most of the newspapers used are weeklies, so where date inaccuracy exists it should not pose a major problem to research.
