Many friends asked me if I had read "The Guns of Meeting Street" and told me what it was all about. Since I live within 20 miles of Edgefield, SC and recognized some of the names in the book, I thought it would be interesting. When I started reading, I could not put the book down. The author, T. Felder Dorn did a huge amount of research for this book and there's a lot of quotes from trial transcripts included which makes you feel like you are right there in the courtroom. Guess people living on Meeting Street just took the law into their own hands in the late 1930's and 1940's! One of the characters in the book, Sue Stidham Logue, was the first woman in South Carolina to be sentenced to death by electrocution. She went to the electric chair like she might be going to get her hair done. It is a very interesting book of facts and well documented. Mr T Felder Dorn did an outstanding job.

Format: Hardcover
This is the story of a family feud in Edgefield Co., SC in the early 40s. Dorn does an outstanding job recreating a time and place where roads were unpaved, electrification just arrived, and acts of vengeance still expected . You can almost see the country store and feel the heat and the dust. There are a series of shootings and a shoot-out with the sheriff. The only weak part is the section in which Dorn substitutes abridged trial transcripts for his own telling of the tale.This book merits attention and readers.

Very interesting account of a tragedy that occurred when my Mother lived in that area. The first woman electrocuted in SC had been my Mother's Sunday School teacher. Mother knew all of these characters.
