The Case of the Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping Trial with Judge Curran - Virtual program
Tuesday, April 117:00—8:00 PMZoom
Unlike almost all of the other trials, I would not categorize this as a great trial that changed history, but rather, as a famous trial.
The trial of Richard Hauptmann, the accused kidnapper of the baby of aviator Charles Lindbergh, was called "the greatest story since the Resurrection." While that description is undoubtedly an exaggeration, measured by the public interest it generated, the Hauptmann trial is among the most famous trials of the 20th century. The trial featured America's greatest hero, a good mystery involving ransom notes and voices in dark cemeteries, a crime that is every parent's worst nightmare, and a German-born defendant who fought against U. S. forces in World War I.
