Abstract

On August 16, 1915, a mob of white Georgians tore into the state prison farm at Mil-ledgeville and abducted one of the inmates, the Jewish factory owner Leo Frank. The following morning, Frank's lifeless body was found hanging from a tree on the outskirts of Marietta, home of the teenage girl he had been convicted of killing.
