The only known riot in Lindsay’s history took place the night of January 31st, 1919. The mob swelled in number to as many as 500, and in the end, every Chinese business in Lindsay was destroyed. One week later, the woman whose situation was the catalyst for the riot was put on trial to determine if she was criminally insane. Find out what led to the riot and what happened in that courtroom.
