I gotta wonder though if those numbers reflect (1) blacks lynched by whites, or (2) blacks and hispanics and chinese and indians lynched by whites. My suspicion is (b). You might want to reflect that the 1913-31 period was pretty much the tail end of lynchings in America, unless you want to count some white-on-black violence during the 1960's.

I recall reading a newspaper obit of a Los Angeles big wig who died in the 1890's. Wealthy man, contributer to politicians, on friendly terms with all the movers and shakers ... The reporter mentioned that the famous man had come to California to make his fortune as a miner among the '49ers, and he liked to recount his exploits to his friends. Shooting down Indian squaws for fun had apparently been one of his pleasures.

Different world back then.

The source on this was Tuskeegee ... so I'm inclined to think it is showing blacks only.

Fair point. I was ... interested (or something)... to notice Springfield Ohio was in that data bank. It was a fact I came across just a few months back that Springfield was the site of the last lynching in Ohio, back around 1913. And oddly enough, I used to live in Springfield as a child, both in the city itself and its suburbs, back in the 1950's. Springfield's "fame" as a lynching site was not something embraced by local politicians or mentioned to school children, for some reason, so it took a half century for that little piece of knowledge to reach me.

My my.

It's always interesting when you find out that you've been fooled all along (we all have our little bits of The Matrix meme).

In my case, I didn't find out until I'd moved away from where I grew up (Amherst, NY) that by some ranking (lost to me now, but somehow official and quasi-academic) that it was the whitest place in the country.

BTW: Springfield is below the Mason-Dixon line. It isn't PC to note that any more. But Civil War historians are quick to point out that "butternut" regions in the North that were sympathetic to the South tended to fall below the line as it ran across Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. So, perhaps it isn't that surprising that the last lynching in Ohio was in that region.

FWIW: MacPherson (I think) made the point that the influence of the Mason-Dixon line for determining sympathies had to do with migrating pioneers tending to move in a fairly level east-to-west direction as they navigated by the sun.
