This double album stands as the greatest accomplishment of human civilization. I may have had a couple of bourbons tonight but my judgment in this matter is 100% objective and correct.

Wow, I had no idea that this video existed! Though a bit condescending in tone it is pretty fair and holds up well. I would love to know more about who made it.

Thanks, Bob. I think lynching is too confining a framework. This period saw an array of extra-judicial violence against Indians to move them off productive lands to the reservations. We tend to look at lynchings, vagrancy laws, and whites jumping Indian land claims as different stories but they are all parts of one story, a concentrated effort of ethnic cleansing.
