The White Caps of Sevier County

Around the turn of the twentieth century there was a vigilante group that operated in Sevier County, Tennessee, named the “White Caps” for the white hoods they wore. Starting out as a means to enforce morals with switchings of immoral women, the White Caps turned increasingly violent, becoming involved in the murder of a couple. On today’s podcast, Steve and Rod tell the story of the White Cap gang of Sevier County.
