Nov. 14, 1909, Cairo, Ill
Nov. 15, 1909: The lynchings in Cairo, Ill., are endorsed from the pulpit and in the press.  Saying that lawlessness was common in the area where a woman was killed, the Rev. George M. Babcock of Church of the Redeemer, Episcopalian, says: “This defiance of law and order made the lynchings necessary to secure justice.” F.A. Thielecke, editor of the Cairo Bulletin, says: “Cairo’s disgrace is not the mob, but the conditions that made the mob necessary.”
