[FL] Legend of "outlaw" Edgar Watson killed 1910
According to legend outlaw/sugar cane farmer Edgar Watson of Everglades Florida-before being killed 1910 by his own neighbors-Watson would exploit Africian Americans and Native Americans as unpaid sharecroppers to cut sugar cane on his plantataion and kill them if they tried to collect wages. Do Africain AMerican oral history confirm this legend?
