lynching sorrel and Dillon
Lynching is another word for hanging. Hanging is where someone ties some kind of rope or something else like that around someones neck and then ties it on a tree or something similar to that. Then someone would climb the tree and jump off the tree or a bridge like that and they would be hanging by their neck, dead.
lynching occurred mostly during slavery and during the reconstruction of the U.S.
lynching was common all over the U.S. during those time periods.
nobody really won or lost because all different types of people were killed or committed suicide, there was not a specific type of person who was targeted.
this activity brought many deaths of not only blacks but also whites.
now in the present, we have learned from our mistakes and rarely anybody lynches anyone anymore.
This is a man hung we think hung by the people who are in this photograph because there is so many of them.
This is a man hung on a bridge, he probably jumped off of the bridge and committed suicide or the people on the bridge made him jump off.
these are two people hung on a tree with a large crowd watching them, probably wondering what happened.
this is a cartoon with a joke about hanging/lynching in it.
