Stagolee Shot Billy, Paperback / softback Book

Stagolee Shot Billy Paperback / softback


Delving into a subculture of St. Louis known as 'Deep Morgan', Cecil Brown emerges with the facts behind the legend of the mystery of Stack Lee and the incident that led to murder in 1895.

How the legend grew is a story in itself, which Brown tracks through variants of the song 'Stack Lee'.
