Maryland’s governor is awarding posthumous pardons to 34 black lynching victims



He read each of the victims’ names aloud before signing the pardons and ending his list with a 13-year-old boy named Fredrick, whose full name, the governor said, “was lost to history.” The boy was hung from a tree in or near Cecilton, a small town about 35 miles southwest of Wilmington, Del., About September 1861.
