Description

Presented in chronological order, this book provides essential details about the 1152 men and women who were legally put to death in the States of North and South Carolina during the century after the Civil War. Each entry contains information about the criminals themselves and the misdeeds which cost them their lives. Based almost entirely on original archival materials such as court records, contemporary newspapers, prisoner files, appellate reports, gubernatorial correspondence, etc., a newer picture of the historical record emerges that students of Southern Justice will find both revealing and disconcerting.
