An entire community was burned to the ground in an incident of racist asymmetrical warfare. And most people have never even heard of it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The community had been or technically still is Rosewood, Florida. It was settled by both black and white people twenty years before the civil war, but the Jim. Crow segregation in the Post Bellum decades put a clear divide into the community. The town was incorporated in eighteen seventy after it got a post office on a train stop and was named Rosewood for the Pink Cedars that were also the base of its economy. Residents worked in lumber, yards, mills, and even a pencil factory. Until the cedars had been overharvested, and the factories began to close. Most of the white residents moved to nearby sumner. But one couple John and Mary right who ran the general store? They were kind to their neighbors, and were known to Slip Candy to the black kids who hung out at the store, possibly because their own children had died young. The white flight continued into the nineteen twenties when Rose Woods population of about two hundred was entirely black plus the rights. The little hamlet got by just fine. Until New Year's Day nineteen twenty-three. Over in Sumner, a woman named Fanny Taylor woke her neighbors, saying a black man had broken into her house and attacked her. Rather than alert sheriff, her husband immediately gathered a group of men. Including clansmen who were in the area for a rally and a tracking dog. the, dog, lead them to the railroad tracks, which led to Rosewood. The mob, which would grow to be three hundred strong got it in their head that they were looking for a black man named Jesse Hunter who had escaped from a chain gang. The dog ran through the open door of a house and back out with that of wagon tracks. When the homeowner swore that no one else had been in his house, the mob tied him to the back of a car and dragged him down a dirt road. Then they tracked down the owner of the wagon whose tracks the dog sniffed. When he also claimed ignorance and innocence, the mob mutilated and killed him. The mob came to the House of Sarah carrier the Taylor's laundries. Two dozen people most of them. Children were hiding inside having heard what was going on already driven out of their homes by fear. For whatever reason the mob was sure that carrier was hiding Jesse Hunter. They fired on the House and carrier. Sons returned fire.

Had, anyone bothered to talk to Sarah carrier about Fannie, Taylor. She would have been able to tell them about Taylor's lover. Her white lover who she had been with before the attack.

The manhunt and terror campaign wasn't confined to that single night, but stretched on for nearly a week. The longer, the mob failed to find hunter, the more agitated and angry became. They weren't about to go home empty-handed. Not when the honor of a white woman was on the line. So they put Rosewood to the torch starting with their church.

Florida's governor offered to send in the National Guard to help, but the sheriff declined saying that he had the situation under control. The Sheriff did help some black residents to flee, but he definitely did not have the situation under control, not by even the most generous interpretation of phrase.

Every building except one. The home of Rose Woods only white family. Some of the residents who didn't escape into the swamp ran to the rights house.

One remembered a plow brought from nearby Cedar Key that covered twenty six bodies. By the time, anyone took a serious interest in finding out the truth. Most of the witnesses were dead. Those who remained, were often to elderly and infirm to be of much help. Whether, it was six, dead or sixty, there were zero arrests the violence in Rosewood. No one return to their homes to rebuilt.
