At the Dead Hours of Midnight

A new book released in December by AGT author Stanford Johnson and co-author Richard Way

 

The White Caps of Sevier County Tennessee were an extralegal vigilante group that dominated that county in the 1890s, through the corruption of the Justices of the Peace legal system. Prominent landowners hijacked the legal system by “organizing White Cap gangs,” who were able to avoid prosecution because of the aforementioned corruption.
