Race riots in northern cities left hundreds dead, and in the South the number of lynching surged, with eight in Alabama, including a certain Cicero Cage, who was cut to pieces in Tuscaloosa. The pressures of war, immigration, black demands and Migration, Bolshevik revolution in Russia, and anxiety among small-town Americans about the alien modern world, combined into a kind of national psychosis.
