U.S. Senator James Eastland Tried to Fake Out LBJ Over Lynching of Freedom Summer Volunteers Schwerner, Goodman and Chaney

Car belonging to Freedom Summer volunteers Mchael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman -- all killed in the summer of 1964 while helping register black voters in the state of Mississippi.

The Sovereignty Commission is filled with documents on Mississippi Burning -- the lynching of three young Freedom Summer volunteers who were killed on this day (and tomorrow) 49 years ago.

I've also posted Chapter 18 of my book, The Plan, that mentions this lynching. You can read more about this andSenator James O, Eastland's involvement on my blog at
