Description:

Thin paper browned with some wear and small chips on edges. Excellent condition overall. See scan. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 1 pages; Jere Baxter was a rail promoter who tried to break the L&N monopoly in Nashville Tennessee. Around 1900 he attempted to gain access for his railroad, The Tennessee Central, to Nashville's newly opened Union Station. Public meetings were held and speakers spoke. This broadside seems to be for a meeting of African-Americans in which the speakers attempted to show the affects of the dispute on the African-American community. The speakers are for the most part African-American clergymen, though W. A. Crosthwait was an African-American attorney in Nashville. Other speakers were: Rev. C. B. Wilson, Rev. Luke Mason, J. C. Crowley, Andrew Clarkson, and P. F. Hill. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Boylin Printing Co, Nashville, TN, 1890. Printed broadside, 12 x 9 inches, the head in bold capital letters. Jere Baxter, a prominent Nashville, Tennessee, businessman, was installed as president of the Tennessee Central Railroad in 1897; this broadside, presenting a week-long speaker's schedule of local African-American leaders, probably relates to disagreements over the use of the city's proposed depot, Union Station. Apparently not recorded on OCLC. Good copy of a fragile broadside. Poor quality paper uniformly browned and brittle (chipped at the edges not affecting the text). (#5036). Jere Baster, a prominent Nashville businessman, was installed as president of the Tennessee Central Railroad in 1897; this broadside, presenting a week-long speakers' schedule of local African-American leaders, probably relates to disagreements over the use of the city's proposed depot, Union Station.
