The Lynching of Reuben Sims

Mr. Reuben Sims is the only documented lynching victim in Baldwin County, Alabama between 1877 to 1950.

Since he was the “only one” I wanted to try to find out a little more about the circumstances surrounding his lynching. Mr. Reuben Sims’ lynching made it in to newspapers across the country.

Below are some articles I found relating to Mr. Reuben Sims’ murder.
