"Enough is enough"
Because it happened the day Jesse James was shot dead in St. Joseph
[killed on April 3, 1882] , the lynching of Levi Harrington was relegated
to the back pages of local newspapers. The press later reported that
Harrington was just a bystander the night Officer Jones died.
Among the many sensational crimes of the early 1880s, the lynching wasn't
even the story of the week. But tragedies like it triggered pockets of
protests, cries for civility.
"I hand you herewith one dollar for the relief of the destitute family
of Levi Harrington," wrote a plasterer named J.G. Cougher, a white man,
in a letter to The Evening Star.
