Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788417452, Paperback)

Many of these legends founded on fact "have been handed down by word of mouth from one generation to another, and no doubt have gained or lost color in the telling." An account of the infamous Patty Cannon—the head of a gang of murderers and slave traders and the horrors of Joe Johnson’s Tavern conclude this work. "Dead men tell no tales, nor did the victims of Patty Cannon when once they got into her clutches." Tilghman, Morris, Hollyday, Lloyd and Cannon are among the many names found within these pages. There is a brief biographical sketch of Frederick Douglass. This work is further enhanced by numerous facsimile reproductions of photographs and charming illustrations. A new fullname index has been added as an aid to genealogists and historians. (1907) reprint, 5.5 x 8.5, illus., index, paper, 83 pp.
