Lynching and Mob Violence in Ohio, 1772-1938

David Meyers and Elise Meyers Walker



239 pages



Diverging from most lynching researchers, Meyers and Walker consider only incidents in which the victim was hanged, arguing that hanging is a kind of mock-legal ritual, and leaves no doubt as to the intent of the mob. Within this narrow definition, they offer an account of every known lynching that took place in the State of Ohio from 1772 to 1938. They use a broader definition, however, when providing a context for lynching, attempted lynching, and other significant acts of mob violence such as tar-and-feathering they have been able to identify.
