This is the story of the June 15, 1920 lynching of three black men in Duluth, Minnesota. On that evening, the three young men, accused of the rape of a white woman, were pulled from their jail cells and lynched by a mob numbering in the thousands. Yet for years the incident was nearly forgotten. 

"This tense book punches out a story of devastating fury...As pointed as a Klansman's cap, this book conveys the horror of mob action--and the disturbing truth that it knows no region." --Milwaukee Journal 

"A chilling reconstruction of a 1920 racial tragedy... Combining hour-by-hour, day-by-day narrative with expert scholarship based on interviews, suppressed documents and news reports, [the author] skillfully portrays Northern prejudice and violence. Without preaching or condemning, he makes readers firsthand witnesses to fear and injustice.” --Los Angeles Times
