Today -100: December 4, 1911: Of race wars and air ships


Racial violence in Mannford, Oklahoma has killed five people (2 white, 3 black) so far. It started when a negro who’d held up three people was first shot by a posse, then seized from a deputy and lynched.

The German military is planning to build a dirigible that can carry 300 persons, though it doesn’t explain how that would be militarily useful.
