  • The Murder of Major General William Nelson

    Wednesday, February 20th at 6:00 PM



    Award-winning historian and author Robert I. Girardi presents a fascinating Civil War murder case.  On September 29, 1862, in the lobby of Louisville’s Galt House Hotel, Brigadier General Jefferson C. Davis murdered Major General William Nelson.   Davis was arrested, but never brought to trial.  A combination of political intrigue, cronyism, and military emergency brought this about.  Girardi discusses the case from his perspective as a Chicago homicide detective.
