This excellent video produced by the Fall River Historical Society bears repeat posting. The clarity of the crime scene photographs and others are because they were taken from first generation photos taken at the time of the early murder investigation on August 4, 1892. At the beginning part of the video we hear Lizzie’s words written while in the Taunton Jail…based on an actual letter acquired by the FRHS while developing their massive, award winning book Parallel Lives – A Social History of Lizzie A. Borden and Her Fall River.
While the video was produced to promote the Society, Parallel Lives, and its collection during the peak visitor period – August – it is well worth watching because whatever the FRHS does, it is always of the highest quality. Michael Martins and Dennis Binette are your tour guides. Enjoy.
