CYRUS: Today is 134th anniversary of Bank of Columbia robbery
Judge Baker saw the brutal slaying of a good and valued citizen, R.A.C. Martin, as a crime so heinous no one should ever think of abolishing the death penalty; Judge Baker recalls the sadness the night the bells tolled in Columbia as the hearse bearing the remains of R.A.C. Martin left this city for the burial in Shelbyville
One hundred and thirty-four years ago, on a sunny Monday afternoon, April 29, 1872, the peace and tranquility of Columbia was shattered as never before when armed bandits brutally gunned Mr. R.A.C. Martin during the now-infamous Bank of Columbia robbery.
In words penned nearly half a century later, Judge H.C. Baker paid touching tribute to Mr. Martin, and, with a few strokes of his pen, laid low the ruthless perpetrators of the crime. CYRUS
