The Tilden-Thurber Affair

Beginning on January 1st, W&W will begin featuring fascinating short clippings from the Fall River and other newspapers from 1892 through the present which concern Lizzie herself or the endless parade of personalities involved in the case. They will remain accessible here in a sort of clippings archive. There is much to be learned from these small snippets in print!
