See scan. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 1 pages; Jere Baxter was a rail promoter who tried to break the L&N monopoly in Nashville Tennessee. Around 1900 he attempted to gain access for his railroad, The Tennessee Central, to Nashville's newly opened Union Station. Public meetings were held and speakers spoke. This broadside seems to be for a meeting of African-Americans in which the speakers attempted to show the affects of the dispute on the African-American community. The speakers are for the most part African-American clergymen, though W. A. Crosthwait was an African-American attorney in Nashville. Other speakers were: Rev. C. B. Wilson, Rev. Luke Mason, J. C. Crowley, Andrew Clarkson, and P. F. Hill.
