Lynching of Michael Green
Green was arrested for assaulting Miss Alice Sweeny on August 26, 1878 and held at the jail in Upper Marlboro. Threats of lynching were openly made and were held off by the vigilance of the sheriff. After several days, a band of masked men removed Green from the jail, placed a noose around his neck and hung him 15 feet in the air from a tree outside of town. His body remained dangling from the tree and was observed the next morning.
