Perhaps by allowing for the argumentative
approach to prove or disprove Ms. Elizabeth Borden’s innocence: Was there enough time for Ms. Borden to make up
the story of her step-brother's disruptive visit? Should the step-brother's visit have been given more detail at the trial?
What other possibilities may be resolved when modern phycology's added to the history of this tragic event?
Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave
her mother forty whacks!
And when the job was nicely done
she gave her father forty-one!
