"Where you see the cross..."; postcard

Subject

Digital : Postcard Scan

Description

Lynching postcards were popular in the Jim Crow South, and while this is not a photo of a lynching, it still demonstrates the perverse fascination with public murder held by a large number of White Ozarkians.

The handwritten text beneath the card says "Where you see the cross, 3 negroes where lynched by a mob the night before Easter. Your cards [?]. Many thanks for [?]. Best Regards to all Marie." It is dated 7/21/'06.
