A Journey Through the Pages of the Keowee Courier for the Years 1927, 1937, 1947, 1957, 1987, 1997 and 2007
About the Book
This is the tenth book in the Looking Back: A Journey Through the Pages of the Keowee Courier series. It contains a history of Walhalla written by Col. R. T. Jaynes of Walhalla in 1950 for the Keowee Courier’s Walhalla Centennial special edition, an account of Oconee County’s first and only lawful execution by hanging in 1883, which remained controversial for many years, as many people believed the wrong man was hanged. Several commentaries and stories were written by Ashton Hester and highlights for the years 1927, 1937, 1957, 1987, 1997, and 2007. The author hopes the Looking Back books will help keep the Keowee Courier’s memory alive in the hearts and minds of local residents.
