John Henry James was an African-American man lynched in Albemarle County in 1898. The lynching occurred after James was accused of raping a white woman, Julia Hotopp. Ms. Hotopp's account alleged that had ridden into town between eight and nine o'clock to have her horse shod. Upon returning, she noticed that the gate, normally latched, was instead bound with wire. She freed the gate, but as she turned to remount her horse, "someone approached her from behind and struck her, and then grasped her by the neck, forcing her to the ground, when she became unconscious."Print: {{{title}}}, {{{author}}}, Daily Progress, Lindsay family , Page {{{pageno}}}.
