About the Book

On July 25, 1903 Sheriff Hardy Whitlock defended the Vermilion County's jail from a rioting mob that had lynched and burned a prisoner, and wrecked the city buildings. The subsequent arrest and trial of some of the rioters brought three men dedicated to upholding the law together: the sheriff, State's Attorney John W. Keeslar, and Judge Morton W. Thompson.
