Haywood County, Tennessee

Haywood County is a county located in the U. S. state in the region known as West Tennessee. As of the 2010 census, the population was 18,787, its county seat and largest city is Brownsville. It is one of only two remaining counties in Tennessee with a majority African-American population, along with Shelby County. Haywood County was created from part of Madison County in 1823–24, was named for Tennessee judge and historian John Haywood; the state legislature designated Brownsville as the county seat. Haywood County was reduced in size, when both Lauderdale and Crockett Counties were created from its territory. For much of the county's history, agriculture growing cotton, was the basis of the local economy, as it was throughout western Tennessee. Before the Civil War, this was accomplished by a plantation system based on the use of enslaved African-American workers. After Emancipation in 1865, many planters hired freedmen as tenant farmers and sharecroppers to produce the cotton crops, which were still important to the state.

The rural county continues to have a majority-black population. Whites lynched three African Americans in the county, most at the county seat of Brownsville, in the period following Reconstruction and into the early 20th century. On June 20, 1940, Elbert Williams, an African-American man, was killed in Brownsville for "attempting to qualify to vote" and "an interest in Negro affairs", he was the last recorded lynching victim in the state. Like other southern states, Tennessee had raised barriers at the turn of the century to voter registration to disenfranchise blacks. Whites maintained the political exclusion, sometimes with violence. Williams was murdered and his body was thrown into the Hatchie River, it was recovered. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 534 square miles, of which 533 square miles is land and 0.9 square miles is water.

Church of St. Anthony of Padua, Czerniaków

The Church of St. Anthony of Padua is the parish church of the Parish of St. Boniface in Czerniaków in Warsaw. Built from the foundation of the Grand Marshal of the Crown, Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski, the owner of Czerniaków, it was planned as a family mausoleum. Designed by the royal architect Tylman van Gameren, the Italian builder Izydor Affaita supervised the construction between 1690 and 1693. A monastery was built at the same time. In the first half of the 19th century the monastery was expanded with a western wing, facing the road leading towards Wilanów. In 1864 the Bernardine convent was closed; the church and monastery suffered in 1939 during the defense of Warsaw and in 1944, during the Warsaw Uprising including damage to the sculptures and painted decorations and imagery. From 1951 to 1954 it was maintained by art conservator Bohdan Marconi, thorough restoration work was performed between 1985 and 1994; this church was never preserved in its original baroque decor. The only original pieces of equipment are oak paneling.

An earlier 18th century, instrument was moved to an unspecified church outside of Warsaw. The church was built on the plan of a Greek cross coupled with an octagonal sanctuary, at the intersection of the arms of the cross, a dome was built on the drum; the structure of the church has an interesting arrangement where the proportions have retained their original appearance including the interior which did not undergo major changes, keeping the decor from the end of the 17th century. The decor of the interior painting shows the life and work of the church's patron, St Anthony of Padua, with 63 of 69 images showing scenes from the life of the patron saint. In the nave there is a series of eight vertical paintings which show scenes of healings performed by him, the last of the frescoes shows the moment of his death. At the altar is a picture of St. Anthony, considered miraculous. In the chancel, frescos show the story of the construction of the temple; the side altars are images of St. Francis and the famous Renaissance triptych, painted on glass, the "Lamentation of Christ", a gift from King John III Sobieski.

The frescoes in the church were inspired by the founder, are attributed to either Francesco Antonio Giorgioliemu or Tylman van Gameren. At the main altar is a reliquary of the martyr St. Boniface, which Lubomirski had received from Pope Innocent XII in 1693 during a pilgrimage to Rome; because of the reliquary and its relation to the cult of the martyr, there was a pilgrimage here until the dissolution of the monastery resulting from the January Uprising. St. Boniface became the patron of the parish, the cult of the saint is inextricably linked to it. In the courtyard of the churchyard is a classical chapel dedicated to St. Boniface from 1839; the area near the church is the former cemetery which leads to the gate from the first half of the 19th century, crowned with the coat of arms of its founders - Lubomirski. On the inner side wall of the church, once a cemetery, there are memorials commemorating soldiers from the 14th Regiment of Lancers, Jazłowiec, who died in 1939, local residents killed and murdered during World War II.

The frescoes in the church depict, among musical angels. The instruments they play are a reflection of the composition of the Royal Orchestra's instruments in Warsaw at the end of the 17th century; the organs and chorus are not located above the main entrance, but behind the altar - unusually located at the center of the chancel. Standing on the northern side is a neo-Gothic gate - the bell tower from the first half of the 19th century is decorated with the coat of arms of the Ossolińskis, who followed the Lubomirski's as Czerniaków's owners; the iron trellis leading from the vestibule to the nave of the church dates from the 17th century and was designed by Tylman van Gameren. This is the second trellis made to this input, the first was a result of a mistake by a blacksmith, impressive but too large - it was used in the construction of the Kotowski chapel in St. Hyacinth's Church in Warsaw, where is today. Both grids are identical, differing only in size; the church contains a 17th-century image of Our Lady of Fraskiej from a former Bernardine church in the Ukrainian town of Fraga.

The monastery building, closed after the dissolution of the Order for secular use, has changed but only the corridor closest to the church has retained its old baroque architecture.
