Adams County Broadside

 Collection
Identifier: M547
Abstract The Adams County Broadside collection contains one article titled “Paul Johnson Murdered!”, which recounts the alleged murder of Paul Johnson—owner of Selma Plantation in Natchez, Mississippi—by Ed Carter, one of Johnson’s African American tenants. This collection would be particularly important for researchers studying Southern plantations, sharecropping, and interracial relationships in the South in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century.
