Thomas Hill, Lynched or Liberated? 1893
Feb. 28, 1893
LYNCHED OR LIBERATED?
A Man Convicted of Assault Taken
From Jail By An Armed Mob.
Atlanta, Ga., Feb 28. Thomas Hill, a white man convicted of assault on a woman in Murray county this week, was sentenced to twenty years in the chain-gang, was taken from jail at Spring Place last night at 12 o'clock by a party of seventy-five or eighty men, armed with Winchesters. The general opinion is that Hill was liberated by the mob, sentiment in Murray county being in his favor and few people believing that he was guilty of the crime charged. Some hold the opinion that he was lynched, but are very few.
