Before executions were moved to Jefferson City, the State of Missouri executed well over 300 people in the various counties, most by legal hanging, and citizens have taken the law into their own hands to lynch about 200 people by hanging during Missouri history. In his latest book, historian Larry Wood details thirteen of the state's more remarkable lynchings and an equal number of its legal hangings.
