In the last decades of the nineteenth century, the lynching of the Black people in the Southern and border states became an institutionalized method used by whites to terrorize Blacks and maintain white supremacy. In the South, during the period 1880-1940, there was deep-seated and all-pervading hatred and fear of the Negro which led white mobs to turn to “lynch law” as a means of social control.

In Lynch Law, the first scholarly investigation of lynching, which was written in 1905, author James E. Cutler stated that. “Lynching is a criminal practice which is peculiar to the United States.

Some Iroquois Indians moved to Pennsylvania in search for new land, and in 1750, Seneca Indians left their Iroquois homeland, and joined the Cayuga tribe in Ohio, where they later became the Mingo Indians. In 1774, while Chief Logan was on a hunting trip with his family, white settlers killed him. This was very tragic, because Chief Logan pretty much built the Mingo tribe, and now it will be even harder to retain their land, because Chief Logan can’t get them out of this. By 1760, the Seneca tribe traveled to Eastern Ohio, and by 1770 they moved to Central Ohio. “Captain William Crawford led an attack against an Ohio Seneca village on the Scioto River near what is now downtown Columbus,” (Douglas, Hurt R.

This letter provides information that the causes leading up to the deaths of these men were from the old Cherokee nation opposing the “Ridge Treaty.” The author of The Cherokee Removal, Theda Perdue, says on page 169 in the book, “ Only two years after their arrival, the Cherokees were tilling fields, sending their children to school, and attending Council meetings.
