Write The First Customer Review

The 1899 lynching of Sam Hose in Newnan, Georgia, was one of the most gruesome events in a tragic chapter of U.S. history. Edwin T. Arnold was troubled by the fact that this horrific act was largely shut out of local public memory and offers the portrait of a place still trying to reconcile itself, a century later, to its painful past.
