Please Note: Conversations on the Civil War with guest Robert Brinkmeyer has been resheduled for next week.
(Originally broadcast 05/30/14) - South Carolina’s Lt. Governor shoots to death the Editor of the state’s largest newspaper, in broad daylight, in downtown Columbia. Sounds like a plot point in a novel? Well, it actually happened, in the early 20th century, and James Lowell Underwood tells the story in his book, Deadly Censorship: Murder, Honor, and Freedom of the Press (USC Press, 2013).
