Events
1. Injured 3000, shot by a negro, 28 Aug 1851 in Portsmouth, Portsmouth (city), Virginia, USA
Argus--28 August 1851
A man by the name of Overton Mathews was shot yesterday, in the open day, by a negro. He and another man, by the name of Davis, were riding together in a buggy on the Canal (bank), not far from the Lake Drummond hotel, when a suspicious looking negro were seen to approach, upon which he suggested to his companion that for the sake of safety they had better get out of the vehicle. So soon as they had done so, another negro approached from a different direction, armed with a double-barrel gun, and without saying a word, fired upon Mathews, wounding his so severaly in the upper part of his leg, that it is thought it will have to be amputated. The wounded man is somewhat notorious for his hatred, and, as they say, cruelty to the colored race.
