The Leo Frank Trial Ends: Closing Arguments by Prosecutor Hugh Dorsey

by Bradford L. Huie, Published August 25, 2013

THE AMERICAN MERCURY now presents the final closing arguments by Solicitor
Hugh Dorsey (pictured) in the trial of Leo Frank for the murder of Mary Phagan —
a powerful summary of the case and a persuasive argument that played a large part
in the decision of the jury to find Frank guilty of the crime. It is also riveting reading
for modern readers, who have been told — quite falsely — that the case against Frank
was a weak one, and equally falsely, that he was convicted because of anti-Semitism.
