Leo Frank Lynching

On August 17, 1915, a mob of men abduct and lynch a Jewish factory owner, Leo Frank near Marietta, Georgia, for the rape and murder of a 13-year-old girl, a crime he almost certainly did not commit. Many historians believe that Frank was lynched to send a message to Jews who were often sympathetic to Blacks during the Jim Crow era.
