Posey County is a county located in the southwestern corner of the U. S. state of Indiana. Its southern border is formed by the Ohio River, the western border by the Wabash River, a tributary; as of 2010, the population was 25,910. The county seat is Mount Vernon. Posey County is part of the Evansville, IN–KY Metropolitan Statistical Area; the Ports of Indiana-Mt. Vernon, on the Ohio River, is the seventh largest inland port in the nation, important to the economy of the state as well as the county. After the American Revolutionary War, Posey County was considered part of the Northwest Territory of the United States, it was organized on November 1814, from Gibson and Warrick counties. It was named for Revolutionary War Gen. Thomas Posey, serving as Governor of the Indiana Territory. Mount Vernon was designated as the county seat in 1825, its port on the Ohio River continues to be integral to the economy of the county. Like other parts of southern Ohio and Illinois, Posey County was settled by many migrants from the Upper South.
Many pioneers had arrived by the Ohio River. The county was developed for farming. In the mid- to late 19th century, the county received many German immigrants, whose descendants make up a large portion of the county population; the river port had rougher areas of vice, a higher population of single men, as was typical. African Americans were among the men who worked at the port. In October 1878, a mob of 200–300 whites lynched five African-American men, taking them from jail in Mount Vernon, the county seat, hanging them from trees on the county courthouse grounds; the mob shot the bodies many times. Four of the men had been indicted as suspects in the rape of three white prostitutes, while the fifth man was killed because he had fatally shot a deputy who tried to arrest his son. Before they left, the mob killed two more African Americans, throwing one to his death into a train's steam engine; this was the largest lynching of African Americans recorded in Indiana's history. No one in the mob was prosecuted, at each court session for the next three years, the prosecutor asked the judge to "set the case over to the next session".
A grand jury was called to investigate the mob action, but with an election pending for the prosecuting attorney, no one was indicted. Following years of research, Posey County judge Jim Redwine wrote a novel called Judge Lynch!, based on the events. Redwine sometimes lectures on the riot, inviting his audience to imagine how they would have acted and stressing the injustice done to the African Americans who were denied the right to a fair trial. Mechanization of dock technology has altered the number of workers at the port, but Posey County is still the seventh-largest internal port in the United States, based on the tons of materials handled. Grain from the Midwest is among the products shipped from here. According to the 2010 census, the county has a total area of 419.32 square miles, of which 409.57 square miles is land and 9.75 square miles is water. The lowest point in the state of Indiana is located on the Ohio River in Posey County, where the Wabash River flows into it.
