Isadore Banks, a black man in Marion who in 1956 1954 was chained to a tree and set on fire, is the subject of this CNN piece posted earlier today. The World War I veteran was honored Monday at a military service arranged by the Army after Banks' granddaughter found his service records. Banks' murderers were never identified, but according to CNN, the FBI is still investigating.
