Leo Frank & The Murder of Mary Phagan

Leo Frank was the manager of a pencil factory full of employed, young teen girls. One Saturday, Mary Phagan had gone into the factory to receive her weekly pay and was found, much later, murdered in the basement of the factory. Leo Frank was wrongly accused of the murder because the girls who worked there really just wanted a little attention and said that he had been a perverted boss and liked to look at girls and things of that nature. Jim Conley had said that he was a worker at the factory and would stand watch while Mr. Frank would "do his business" with the girls in his office. Jim had also told many lies about how Leo Frank would do awful things with the girls and other actions. Leo Frank was sentenced to life in prison, but was broken out of prison and hung by an angry mob of citizen s in the town where this all happened.

Nominated by the populist party as its Vice presidential candidate in 1896.
