This is old Red in Dallas
Lizzie Borden House!
The Borden house has 2 stair cases, one in the front leading to the guest bedroom, Lizzie’s room, and through Lizzie’s room to Emma’s. As I’ve said, the door between Lizzie’s and her parents’ room was locked and blocked by Lizzie’s bed. There was, therefore, no access to that half of the upstairs from this stair case, or vica versa.
On the day of the murder, when Andrew came home, the door was bolted from the inside. Andrew had to be let in by Bridget (his key wasn’t good enough). This is what the maid said, and that she heard Lizzie “laugh” from the top of the stair case. Lizzie denied it, saying she was in the kitchen. If, however, Bridget were correct, it’s eerily possible that she was laughing not only because her father couldn’t get in–but because she could see through the rails, under the bed, to where her stepmother lay dead in a pool of blood.
Andersonville Prison, Historical Site, Georgia
Andersonville Confederate Prison, Georgia. When a prisoner crossed the dead line, he was shot dead. This is where the term deadline, which we now use in a much less lethal manner, originated.
