Providence Journal Launches Six-Part Serial for the 120th Anniversary of Lizzie’s Acquittal

ProjoA much-anticipated series debuted today in the Sunday Providence Journal. ” Projo” writer Paul Davis certainly did his homework for this six-part article which runs all week and features some new, never-before-published information. The writing is crisp, accurate and thought-provoking and highlights trial coverage from 1893 Providence Journals.  Lizziephiles will be over the moon with the expansive coverage.  If you cannot obtain a hard copy of the paper, read all about it at the newspaper online link.


A short trailer was put up on Saturday night to heighten anticipation.


A promotional online video is also on the Projo site and Youtube which features Warps and Wefts writer, Shelley Dziedzic who made a tour with Journal reporter Paul Davis in May.  The tour encompassed all things “Lizzie” in and around Fall River and a jaunt to the New Bedford courthouse to visit the scene where the 1893 trial unfolded.

    Lizzie was known to be a spinster…yet in the picture of her standing behind a chair, she is wearing a ring on her left ring finger…anyone know anything about that? I find it very curious
