Postscript to external link Without Santuary

Up to a few years ago there was an internet website of a collection of lynching pictures from the book of the same name of "Without Santuary". This website no longer exists..however while it did about twenty of the pictures were unknown as to circumstances...through research about a dozen were updated as to circumstances...a link to notes is at https://civilwartalk.com/threads/a-post-civil-war-legacy-lynching-warning-graphic-accounts-and-pictures.118468/

For example one postcard printed in a Midwest state stated the victium was lynched for killing a policeman named Collins...in fact the slain officer was Charles Collis of Springfield Oh in March 1904!

Note: As before the website is no longer online so please use the book in companion with these notes

Warning these are very Graphic Pictures. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.5.93.122 (talk) 13:57, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Disenfranchisement Section Needs Major WorkEdit

I think this section should be flagged for a re-write, potentially using the main article on disenfranchisement. Many of its statements lack citations, and some lines make no sense, especially in the intro section. For example: "Thousands of workers were brought in by planters to do lumbering and work on levees." This sentence is a stand alone paragraph, with no explanation or citation. Perhaps someone else knows why its there, or what the original author meant? Also, the next paragraph, discussing rates of lynching seems poorly written and alongside the preceding paragraphs focuses heavily on the Mississippi delta and neglects the rest of the South or US.

Infobox for lynching victims?Edit

I've never been involved this way with infoboxes before, but there are so many I think they merit their own infobox. Other opinions? deisenbe (talk) 18:01, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
