From early 1869 through the end of 1871, citizens of Jackson County, Florida, slaughtered their neighbors by the score.

The killings, close to 100 and by some estimates twice that number, brought Jackson County the notoriety of being the most violent county in Florida during the Reconstruction era. Daniel R. Weinfeld has made a thorough investigation of contemporary accounts.
