Lizzie Borden and George D. Robinson - the Trial of the Century - upcoming talk - Chicopee, Massachusetts

The infamous Lizzie Borden, who was said in the children's rhyme to have "took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks...etc.," was defended at her trial by Chicopee's own George D. Robinson, former Governor of Massachusetts. I'll be presenting a talk for the Chicopee Historical Society on Lizzie Borden and George D. Robinson in the very first "Trial of the Century" on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 6:30 p.m., in the Community Room of the Chicopee Public Library, 449 Front Street, Chicopee. The event is free and open to the public. Please note: masks are required.
