Fact of the Day: The Happy Lizzie Borden

While most figure Lizzie Borden had been the one who murdered her parents, she was tried in court, but the jury thought she was not guilty. After her release from court, she told the press that she was "the happiest woman in the world."

  3. I've watched a few documentaries about her, and I must admit her story was quite gripping.

  4. Yikes. Happy woman because she was found not guilty? Or happy because she beat the rap?

  5. "Lizzie Borden took an ax
    And gave her mother 40 whacks
    When she saw what she had done
    She gave her father forty-one"

    Whatever poet came up with THAT (the prosecuting attorney, maybe?) sure wasn't convinced of her innocence!
