PATRIOTIC MURDER: A World War I Hate Crime for Uncle Sam
Robert Prager, a lonely German immigrant searching for the American dream, was probably the most shameful U.S. casualty of WWI. In Collinsville, Illinois, an enraged, drunken mob hung Prager from a tree just after midnight on April 5, 1918. The jury acquit them, all while a band played "The Star-Spangled Banner" in the courthouse lobby. 24 pages of photos.
