The Woolfolk Tragedy: The Murders, the Trials, the Hanging & Now Finally, the Truth!
Before sunrise on August 6, 1887, a respected gentleman farmer, Capt. Richard F Woolfolk, was savagely murdered along with his wife, their six children, and his wife's 84 year old great aunt. At daybreak, local authorities, crippled by mass hysteria, made an arrest. The state of Georgia abruptly awakened from its simmering post Civil War stupor and struggled to prove the one survivor of that tragic night, Thomas G. Woolfold, the Captain's eldest son, to be the lone axe murderer. Tom's fate placed him in the turbulent epicenter of the South's racial,, moral, social, political, and ecomomic tempest. Unconvinced of Woolfolk's guilt, a single reporter was determined to search out the truth while a valiant attorney courageously fought the prejudiced system for the sake of justice. In the end, they all went to their deaths carrying the burden of the Woolfolk tragedy on their shoulders.
