In 1859, newspapers throughout Minnesota covered the trial of Ann Bilansky, a St. Paul woman accused of murdering her husband. Although Bilansky was convicted and later executed in 1860, doubts remain about whether she was truly guilty.
This tour focuses on those involved with the case, from Bilansky and her lawyers to journalists and politicians. Hear court testimony, see newspaper articles chronicling the timeline of events, and discover the role forensic evidence played in gaining a conviction.
This program is intended for ages 18 and up.
