“To Kill a Mockingbird” – 1915

Record #:
Game laws in the 20th-century can sometimes be confusing with their many exceptions and special regulations. Compared to the state's hunting laws in 1915, however, today's laws are simpler. Fields examines the 1915 Synopsis of the Game Laws of Counties in North Carolina, Under Jurisdiction of the State Audubon Society, So Far As They Apply to the Counties Wherein the State Game Wardens Have Authority for Enforcing the Bird and Game Protective Laws to give readers a look at the hunting laws of fifty years ago. Killing a mockingbird in Edgecombe County, for example, could cost the perpetrator a fine of not more than $50 or imprisonment not exceeding 30 days.
