The month long Leo Frank trial, for the murder of Mary Phagan, took place from July 28, 1913 to Aug 26, 1913. The trial testimony and questions were captured as a stenographic record, in total, numbered approximately 1,080,060 words (Phagan Kean, 1989), in a 7 volume set, on over 3,647 pages of legal cap paper (Rosser, Bass, 1914). Alas, it went missing from the Georgia State Archives in the 1960’s (Oney, 2003; Georgia State Archivist Mr. Smith, 2010), around the time Harry Golden and Leonard Dinnerstein were studying the case. However, the Brief of Evidence 1913, and most of the official legal documents there after, from 1913 to 1915, during the appeals survived (thank goodness), most of which are available exclusively for the time being in this archive. We hope these documents exclusive to our web site, will slowly find their way onto other online libraries and archives.
The Entire Surviving Leo Frank Case Official Records Number More Than 3,000 Pages
The surviving official records of the Leo Frank trial and appeals are more than 3,000 pages in total.

Frank murder trial testimony (July 28 to August 26 1913) for the strangulation of Mary Phagan, but not the questions. Atlanta’s three major local newspapers, published accounts of the trial questions as well as the answers, enabling the possibility of a very interesting project, to re-create an abridged version of the trial transcript (Completion Date: 2015). The Georgia Supreme Court records, have the most salient portions of the transcript, including Jim Conley’s testimony and these 1,800 pages will eventually be OCR formatted for searching (Completion Date: 2014).

There is only one physical copy surviving today, and it is securely locked up deep in the vault at the Georgia State Archive (Smith, 2010) and is not available for public viewing. However, copies of the BOE have been made into microfilm, but are difficult to come by, as they are limited in number and are no longer produced by the Georgia State Archive since funding ran out, fortunately there are reasonable alternatives to acquiring and reviewing these dry leaves. There are surviving copies of the BOE in several major libraries around the United States, be we are proud to present it’s original scanned pages in both full color, and gray scale.

97 Years of Elusiveness and Jewish Censorship Comes to an End in 2010
Why are these documents so important to the public? There was a time these elusive records were mostly only available to coke-bottle bespectacled researchers for the last century, and the public would have to take the word of Jewish-American authors about the Leo Frank mythology they created, because the average person was simply not going to go through the trouble of tracking down these primary sources, to read them, sift them and apply commonsense, but today with the click of a button people can access these items effortlessly.
The 21st Century Challenge to every human being alive who can comprehend the English language on a highschool level, all the way up to Ph.D. level, did the Jewish-American’s who wrote about this case from 1956 to 1913, commit conspicious omissions, fabrications, and fraud, or not?
So, now is the time to go, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph, page by page, and book by book, to unravel the most disgusting centarian campaign in American history by tribal extremist Jews community, over the last 100 years (1913 to 2013), to falsify the records and events of this well documented legal case.

The Leo Frank trial was the first time in United States History a defendant made delicious irony with a virtual murder confession at his own murder trial trial (Most People Don’t Know This Fact).
Leo M. Frank, Plaintiff in Error, vs. State of Georgia, Defendant in Error. In Error from Fulton Superior Court at the July Term 1913. Brief of Evidence 1913.
The 1913 Brief of Evidence reveals three murder confessions given by Leo Frank, two privately on Saturday, April 26, 1913, and one publicly on August 18, 1913. A fourth Leo Frank admission that amounted to a murder confession was published by the Atlanta Constitution on March 9, 1914.
The first Leo Frank murder confession was given by Leo Frank to Jim Conley between Noon and 1:00PM on April 26, 1913.
The second Leo Frank murder confession was given by Leo Frank to Lucille S. Frank on the evening of April 26, 1913 in their bed chamber. Leo Frank was stone cold drunk and said to his wife, he didn’t know why he would murder and he called for his pistol, so he could blow his brains out. He made Lucille Sleep on the floor. See the Earth Shattering: State’s Exhibit J.
The third Leo Frank murder confession was given on August 18, 1913, when Leo Frank told a stunned Jury he might have “unconsciously” gone to the bathroom in the metal room (see states exhibit A) to counter Monteen Stover’s testimony that Leo Frank’s office was empty between 12:05 and 12:10. It was an ironically shocking admission, because the State had spent 29 days trying to prove Leo Frank murdered Mary Phagan in the metal room between 12:05 and 12:10. Now Compare the testimony of Leo Frank, Monteen Stover and Leo Frank’s State’s Exhibit B. State’s Exhibit A, shows that the ONLY bathroom on the second floor was in the metal room. Now read the testimony given at the Coroner’s Inquest in the Journal, Georgian and Constitution.
Leo Frank had just made another virtual murder confession? True, False, Maybe, Sorta?
The Atlanta Constitution March 9th, 1914, there is an interview with Leo Frank where he affirms his murder confession number 3.
The Centennials: Please Promote the Leo Frank Library Archive
Please help promote our massive Leo Frank archive web site http://www.LeoFrank.org between April 26, 2013 and August 17, 1915, to remember the 100th anniversary of the tragic bludgeoning, rape and strangulation of Mary Anne Phagan (1899 to 1913), and hanging of Leo Max Frank (1884 to 1915).
After reading these three local Atlanta Georgia newspapers from 1913 to 1915, it is time for you to decide the truth, first as the Judge and Jury, and secondly, then as the Georgia Supreme Court Justices, to determine whether or not, the verdict rendered against Leo Frank on August 25, 1913, by the jury & August 26, 1913, by the judge, was correct and should stand:
1. You are now the Judge and Jury, read the official Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence from beginning to end, sifting it and pass your verdict. Would you leave the verdict of the jury and judge undisturbed?
2. You are now the Georgia Supreme Court, read the Leo Frank Supreme Court Records in either individual images or PDF, from beginning to end, sifting it and pass your verdict. Would you leave the verdict of the jury and judge undisturbed?
