June 20 2008 Today in History Newsletter

Greetings, friends!

I love true crime—especially sensational cases or cases that involve conspiracy or cover-ups. And the Lizzie Borden case is certainly one of those! You’ll find more on this week’s newest article:

Lizzie Borden Acquitted (June 20, 1893)
Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks...or did she? She was acquitted on three counts of murder on June 20, 1893, but the legend of her murderess rampage that August 4th morning lives on... is it fact or is it fiction?

This week’s discussion topic is going to be about this trial. I’ll post a poll so you can cast your vote! Did she do it? Was she even capable? Make sure to register to participate in the free, fun online discussion here -
