Trial By Jury

By Mark Keith, 09/17/19 7:57 PM

Historic Washington State Park recently enacted the 1880’s version of “Trial By Jury”.  This drama is an adaption of an actual murder trial from the 1880’s.  We’re not going to share any details (plan to go see it the next time it is staged) but we are indebted to Mr. Oller for sharing these fine pictures of Charli Johnson, Chris Adams, and Rose Mary Johnson Adetunji.  The drama (and its companion piece which is set in the 1840’s) is virtually unique in the United States as the reenactment happens in the actual courtroom where the original trial took place.
