Mountain Tom Clark

Florence, Alabama has an interesting sign to memorialize  a lynching of a notorious outlaw hanged in 1872, and buried in the middle of Tennessee Street.  Mountain Tom Clark, subject of much legend and historical fact was the person in question.  After the Civil War there was a lot of lawlessness and paying back of old scores, some not even war-related.  

Hopefully, this link will provide some background; perhaps more than you might want to plow through.
