"Diamond Bessie Murder Trial"

This play is an adaptation of the last stages of a famous trial that took place in Jefferson in the late 1800s. The trial of Abe Rothschild for the murder of the beautiful Diamond Bessie stirred the passions of people across the nation. The case itself set a number of legal precedents which are followed in Texas to this day. After more than a half of century of productions, the play has become a tradition during the Historical Pilgramage.
