Leaders and Legacies on the Lazier murder reenactment

All the re-enactors except the two hanged men... which seems ominous
Roderick Benns, who attended, gives a full report on an unusual piece of local history re-enacting last Friday: the 1884 trial of two accused murderers, with lawyers and local historians playing the parts, a court-filling audience happily taking sides, and the whole thing taking place in the original courtroom in the original courthouse, in Picton, Ontario.
