The American Mercury on The Leo Frank Trial: Closing Arguments of Solicitor Dorsey Part One Trial of Leo Frank

Published on Dec 21, 2022
THE AMERICAN MERCURY now presents the final closing arguments by Solicitor Hugh Dorsey in the trial of Leo Frank for the murder of Mary Phagan — a powerful summary of the case and a persuasive argument that played a large part in the decision of the jury to find Frank guilty of the crime. It is also riveting reading for modern readers, who have been told — quite falsely — that the case against Frank was a weak one, and told, equally falsely, that “anti-Semitism” was a major motive for the arrest, trial, and conviction of Frank.
