Today in History: Moore’s Ford Lynching Occurred

During the late afternoon of the 25th of July 1946,  four African-Americans were shot dead by a lynch mob at Moore’s Ford, Walton county, Georgia, about eight miles from the town of Monroe.

The Coroner said at least sixty bullets were pumped into them and were found in a clump of bushes beside a little used side road.

The uper parts of the bodies were scarcely recognizable from the mass of bullet holes.

“The victims were Roger Malcom, aged 24, Dorothy Malcom, aged 20, George Dorsey, a World War II hero, aged 28, and Mae Murray Dorsey, aged 23.
