Not only can Warsaw claim the lives of a black man and woman, lynched, in traditional Jim Crow fashion, but there was also a major race riot that happened here.

Harrison and Klotter writes: "A band of five hundred whites in Gallatin County , for example, forced hundreds of blacks to flee across the Ohio River."

Uh... when did this happen, and why hasn't anybody said anything about it?

The Black Frenches were lynched, and so was Black Man Abijah Gridley. The Jailer ran away, and let his wife guard the prisoner, which didnt work.

Here's a message board about the entire family of Gridley's in US Census, 1840. 10-21-1871 is when Abijah Gridley got his. Wonder where the Gridley's went, and if they are related to the namesake on Gridley Hill Road. Abijah North Gridley, his son, was born the year before.

That must have been the good old days people talk about.

"Whites in Northern Kentucky were determined to force blacks to move elsewhere, even though the number of Afro-Americans living there was relatively small in comparison with the black population with the rest of the state. About a year after the close of the Civil War [1866], a large band of whites in Warsaw began whipping Blacks, stealing their property, and ordering them to leave the area. Freedman Bureau agent J.J. Landrum, unable to prevent the violence, reported, "Some 200 negroes I'm informed crossed the Ohio above this place today others are preparing to leave for fear of... other abuses." In a second letter describing the situation in Warsaw, Landrum concluded that only by using the "bluecoats" --Union soldiers--would the outrages end. The report from another bureau agent in August 1867 confirmed that blacks were still being ousted in northern Kentucky: "In a recent tour made by Captain Graham through Kenton, Boone, and Grant counties he found the blacks very much excited, and in many instances they have left their homes in the Country, and come to Covington. They allege that since the election they have been told that they are all going to be re-enslaved again. They... complain bitterly... that they are living in a regular reign of terror." Attempts to force blacks to leave this area of the state would continue well into the next decade."

Remember when Abe Lincoln slaughtered lots of u wyte racists ? Boy oh boy, that was hilarious! OMG, those Confederates were like "No, Mr, Lincoln, please dont hurt us". LOL And all it took for KKK to leave Black folks, and Jews, and Homosexuals, and poor wytes, alone was a few guns. It aint no thang. U think innocent people dying is just a punchline for u, when a line of people should be punching u. Here's a picture to show u how evil and sick and sadistic and sexually neurotic u racist wytes r:

Why do racist loser whites feel the need to strip the Black man, and cut off his balls for souvenirs ? Wat do u racist loser whites get from that barbarity? And how u gonna call u civilized? U want people to die just cuz of the hue of their skin... meanwhile ur pasty wives are going to tanning bed cuz they embarassed of it.

Look at how the racist loser whites dress... like they going to Church! And KKK was Christian, dont eva forget that. And they martyred lots of Black Jesus's... such as Gallatin's own Abijah Gridley, and most likely the whole family the Gallatin racist loser wytes burned in their house, on Gridley Hill. No wonder those hills are haunted... cuz u sick sadistic people been covering up all ur crimes.

Wyte Loser Racists love Hitler:

Also, I like how I offer information, and all u got is bigotry. W/o ur hatred of Black folks, u aint got anything. In fact, racist whites will hate other whites if they dont have ignorant feelings like themselves. How one can't cry when they watch how wyte racists do this:



MLK died by telling Amerika some obvious shyt. Its 2012, dont u think it's time to grow up?

Lake Jones was the one that the Frenches had supposedly poisoned, but it didn't matter anyways, since the Frenches were known for "bad reputation". Said of Lake Jones, the most respected Black man in Gallatin County in 1876, he was "the best NNNNNN in the country". Malcolm X had a joke: What does the white man call a black man with a PhD? A NNNNNN. Heck, a 50 year old is President, accomplished more than most all 50 year olds in the world, and still can't get no respect.

Johnny Masters returns....as Simon Girty. He has been Abraham Lincoln and some french guy on the Louisville forum for some time. Still spouting the SOS.

Sorry Johnny but there is a new resident idiot of Warsaw topics. Her name is Pale Rider. I must admit, you are more passionate about what you state.

Welcome back.

Johnny don't pay an ounce of attention to Neutral. He lives over a gay bar in Louisville where he works as a bartender. He is awful, nasty, and stupid.

"The telegraph operator at Patriot, Ind., telegraphs that he has been called upon to aid in quelling a negro insurrection which broke out last night in Owen and GALLATIN Counties, in Kentucky. Great fears were felt, as it was supposed the negroes were led on by two or three white citizens of Kentucky. The people are gathering their forces to put down the rebellion, and runners have been sent to Indiana for assistance. Capt. Wells, of this place, who has a company ready for our own State service, has telegraphed that he would send his men and arms to their assistance, if needed.

The telegraph line has been down all the morning between Patriot and Vevay, so we are without any news from the latter place.. It is thought that the line has been cut by the insurgents, to prevent the transmission of the news of the insurrection."

Whites wanna pretend like Mexicans are illegal immigrants, when they've been in AmeriKKKa for 14,000 years ago, when they crossed the Siberian Land Bridge. 14,000 years ago. And wites wanna say they been here longer... puh-lease. "Whites", who aint white, been here since 1492, 520 years ago... so 14,000 versus 520 years. Yeah, Mexicans win, and they may want their land back, and justice says they should be able to get it back just as we took it. All in the name of wealth and prosperity, that's why whites started being violent, and committing genocide, starting wars, up until today. Wites have always been violent. and they pretend they had Christian values. Christopher Columbus was Christian. So was Mussolini, and HITLER, and Russian Tsars... right wing Catholic Church caused most of the bloodshed in Europe, and KKK is "Christian", since that's what Jesus would have done. He said turn the other cheek, and terrorize NNNNNNs. Jesus Christ. When yall gonna stop being so violent? 100 million native AmeriKKKans are dead b/c of Christopher Columbus. No, I wont celebrate war and genocide. Somebody's got to have some morals around here.
