Crime and Punishment on the Isles of Shoals: The Ballad of Louis Wagner - on Wednesday, October 26th at 6:30pm
Louis Wagner was accused of murdering Anethe and Karen Christenson on Smuttynose Island, Isles of Shoals, in March of 1873. He was convicted on the first charge and executed in 1875. Although sentiment against Wagner was at a fever pitch immediately following the murders, time and reflection have generated an ongoing debate as to the fairness of the trial and the validity of the verdict.
John Perrault invites you to examine the judgment of Louis Wagner. Perrault weaves his "Ballad of Louis Wagner" through the course of the program with guitar and vocal. Brought to you by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
