Foreclosures, riots and jail time, part one

A word about back taxes as taken from a 1936 issue of the Gallatin Democrat: "Tax purchase certificates were given to the highest bidders and if the property owners could not pay their back taxes within the next two years, it entitled the holder to a tax deed. The certificate could be redeemed by the owner within the two year period by giving their face figure and ten percent interest."
