Re: “THE GOOD FIGHT ‌ The Last Lynching

The real victim in this story, Thomas Brown, was my Great Grandfather. Of course I never knew him, having been born in 1969. However I was told by my Grandmother, Lenora (Brown) McDonald, my Great Grandfather knew Willie Earle and gave him rides home for free several times, due to his (Earle's) numerous instances of public intoxication. My Great Grandfather, who was a World War One Veteran and a kind; non-racist gentle man, was murdered by Earle for a grand total of $12.00. The murder weapon (a knife) was found in Earle's bedroom, after police followed his footprints from the murder scene to his residence. My Great Grandfather has been forgotten in this story. Earle never got his day in court, but please remember my Great Grandfather never got the chance to live out his natural life or see his Grandchildren (Except the first when he was only days old) or any of his Great Grandchildren...
