Leo Frank Trial Day 24

This was the twenty-fourth day in the trial of Leo Frank in the Fulton County Courthouse. Prosecutor Hugh Dorsey continued his eloquent, yet ferocious, closing argument, condemning Frank for his abhorrent behavior and contending that he could not care less what opposing attorneys or Frank’s family thought of him - his duty was to Mary Phagan and the people of Georgia.
