One of the standout events this week is the remembrance of Ed Johnson, who was wrongfully lynched on the Walnut Street Bridge in 1906. On March 19th, a special commemoration will be held to honor Johnson’s memory. Participants will gather by the Ed Johnson Memorial, where flowers adorned the monument last year, serving as a poignant reminder of the historic injustice.

Chattanooga’s Irish Connection

In sync with the St. Patrick’s Day spirit, Chattanooga also celebrates its Irish connections.
