The Law, Crime and Punishment
A collection of Florence Herald articles for 1898 detailing the arrests, trials, and sentencing of Lauderdale County residents in the commissioner's, mayor's and police courts. Usually, though not always, African-American defendants are noted by the descriptor "colored," therefore I have included every one of these articles I could locate.
