Jim Hall held a 36 year career in news reporting and editing for The Caroline Progress and The Free Lance-Star. In The Last Lynching in Northern Virginia: Seeking Truth at Rattlesnake Mountain, which focuses on a complex and disturbing chapter in Virginia history, Hall explores the case of the controversial hanging of a black man in 1932, which some called a suicide while others claimed it was a lynching.
