Friday Photo

Happy Friday! I'm gearing up to give a talk about “Women Who Went Astray”—and who served time in Deer Lodge. Today's photo is a sneak peek. The talk will be Wednesday at 12:00 at the Historical Society. $5 admission. More details on the Society's event calendar here or call Katie at 444-9553.

Mattie Lee was convicted of murder in 1904 in the death of a man she shot point-blank in a Philipsburg saloon over a small debt she claimed he owed. Her counsel was not able to convince the jury that she was insane and shouldn't be imprisoned.
