Judge Thomas Speaks On Lynching Of Ed Johnson At Chattanooga Area Historical Association

  • Tuesday, September 13, 2022

The Chattanooga Area Historical Association will meet on Monday, Sept. 19, 6 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 554 McCallie Ave.

Judge Neil Thomas will explain how the March, 1906 lynching of Ed Johnson is tied to the Supreme Court's decision in returning abortion laws to the states. The judge will also give us a brief overview of how the Court functions, and the influence the Ed Johnson decision has had on the Court.

First Presbyterian Church is at the corner of McCallie Avenue and Douglas Street with parking in the rear. For those who are not familiar with the area, the sanctuary is on the corner; next to the church
is a tall building and between it and the larger building which is now owned by UTC is a small driveway. Enter the church from the parking lot. The meeting will be held in the chapel and no steps involved. If you cannot find it, call 595-4468; we will get you to the meeting.

All meetings are free of charge and open to the public.
