Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 167 – Late 1800s New Orleans

In this episode of Trampled Underfoot Podcast, Eloy Escagedo presents a New Orleans story from the late 1800s. This is the true account of a police detective named David Hennessy, the Italian community in New Orleans, and a series of tragic events that lead to the mob lynching of 11 people. The tale is an interesting, eye opening look into the lawlessness of elected officials, the public at large, and the press at the time.
