The Borden Tragedy A Memoir of the Infamous Double Murder at Fall River Mass 1892 A Treasury of Victorian MurderLizzie Borden took an axe gave her mother forty whacks when she saw what she had done she gave her father forty oneFrom the introduction The account presented in these pages of 19th Century America's most famous murder case is excerpted and adapted from the unpublished memoirs of a thus far unknown lady of Fall River Massachusetts Since the typewritten unedited manuscript came to light at a 1990 estate What a great illustration of a true crime I had heard of the famous Lizzie Borden rhyme Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; When she saw what she had done she gave her father forty one but I didn't know much about the actual murdersIn August 1892 Lizzie's father and step mother were brutally chopped to death with an axe in their home in Fall River Massachusetts Lizzie was charged with the crimes but later found not guilty This comic adapted information from a memoir of a lady in Fall River and it was fascinating The book did a nice job of laying out the evidence and also the unanswered uestions in the case I enjoyed this comic in the Victorian Murder series so much I've reuested several other Rick Geary books from the library Highly recommended

reader ã doc The Borden Tragedy A Memoir of the Infamous Double Murder at Fall River Mass 1892 A Treasury of Victorian Murder ´ 9781561631896 ò Lizzie Borden took an axe gave her mother forty whacks when she saw what she had doneSale its provenance has been established to a satisfying degree As part of the contents of an unopened trunk it resided since the turn of the century in the basement of a private archive in BostonIn this third volume of Geary's Treasury the famous Lizzie Borden double murder is explored with as much attention to well researched detail as in his Jack the Ripper This is another celebrated murder of last c 25 stars this is an illustrated re telling of the Borden murders and the trial of Lizzie Borden The illustrations weren't of a style I was overly fond of but they were well done All in black and white but not something that would appeal to everyone unless they had a particular interest in the subjectI apparently do not have that interest personally I found the text to be a bit on the dull side as well It's a very precise methodical re telling easy enough to read even if it's not the most engaging story Also included in the back of the book are copies of articles run during the original investigation which if anything I found even dull probably because reading them is largely just going over the same information that Geary passed on through the comic itself It's a bit interesting I suppose to see the development of the investigation but I mostly just skimmed the articles as I wasn't really interested in them Overall it's a decent book through probably appealing to people with an interest in true crime

Don’t actually That would be frightening to hear from a deceased Lizzie Borden
