[IL] Postscript to Jack Johnson 1910 fight

Several contemporary newspaper references of the July 1910 Jack Johnson prizefight report a unnamed "Negro" constable killed in a fight at Mounds, Pulaski County Illinois killed by blacks celebrating Johnson's victory.
A Pulaski Co Illinois newspaper of
July 1910 account of the Officer's death-his name was Wesley G. Davis-report that his assislants were negro
but do not report on the skin color of the fallen lawman.
