For some, "lynching" comes from Charles Lynch, judge and farmer from Virginia who used to brutally punish outlaws. For others it comes from Colonel James Lynch. However it is mainly attributed to Captain William Lynch (1742-1820) originator of the «Lynch Law».
Other claim that the term comes from Willie Lynch...

Most of the lynchings had the same "scenario"; the whole town is alerted (very often the neighboring towns as well), the victim is beaten up, tortured (some will rather say "mutilated"), burned alive then hanged or hanged then burned, body parts are cut off then sold (there comes the scramble to gat hold of the "souvenirs"), pictures a taken and postcards are sent.

Do not be fooled by the movies, it was rare that the lynchings would happen at night with few people involved. Contrary, huge crowds of hundred and sometimes thousand of "spectators" would let out all kinds of exclamations to express their distraction towards such atrocities. Men women, children, policemen, judges, journalists, all social classes were there.

Those very common events lead to the establishment of the NAACP in 1909.
The Tuskegee institute has recorded 4,742 lynchings of blacks between 1882 and 1968.
