Atlanta turned out in force to watch the lynching of Sam Hose (Wilkes), a itinerant black worker who admitted killing wealthy Alfred Cranford, a resident of the rural town of Newnan. Also to be lynched was a black man, perhaps a preacher, name Strickland, who may have had a role in killing Cranford.
