The shooting of Edward Graham
The shooting of Edward Graham
Article in "The Lennox Herald" in March 1902 regarding the shooting of Edward Graham.

I have typed the article exactly as it appeared in the newspaper including line length and hyphens.

It is interesting to compare this account with the account told during the subsequent trial. Even way back in 1902 the popular press printed absolute nonsense.
