BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Recent incidents of nooses found on college and school campuses are disturbing more than students and parents.
Alex DeMetrick reports, for two Eastern Shore men, a noose is a powerful reminder of the last lynching in Maryland.
The historic jail in the Eastern Shore town of Princess Anne represents a painful history for Kirkland Hall and Henry Armwood. Both are distant relatives of the last man lynched in Maryland.
It was 1933. George Armwood was jailed for allegedly attacking a white woman. A mob formed outside the jail, before storming inside with battering rams.
