About the Event

 About "Garrison Avenue":

Fort Smith, Arkansas, in the 1910s was no longer a rough western town. Electric lights, fancy hotels, new theaters, trolleys, and automobiles were changing how people traveled, did business, worshiped and enjoyed themselves. Citizens viewed it as a modern city where life was "worth living." Until the night of March 23, 1912 when violence overtook Garrison Avenue--beginning with the shooting of a popular lawman, Andy Carr, and ending with the lynching of an innocent young black man, Sanford Lewis.
