Blue Eyed Six - Murder in 19th Century Pennsylvania
By Gary Ludwig
Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Rated "G" by the Author.

Share this with your friends on FaceBook

Author: Gary Ludwig. Publisher: Hodge Podge USA. 36 pp. NEW BOOK. Soft cover booklet. 5.5" x 8.5". Photos & Illustrations. Historical narrative originally published in 1979 as a four part magazine series to note the 100th anniversary of the crime.

Six desperate men insured and then killed an old mountain man. All six had blue eyes!

Gary Ludwig cuts through the typical myths and exaggerations of many notorious events of local histories to write a condensed and thorough account of one of the most infamous 19th century murders.
 
It took place within the isolated, poverty-stricken community located up against the Blue Mountains in North Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, which was occupied by some of the most desperate people of the time. Arguably the first insurance murder in America and setting legal precedent - the first time conspirators went to the gallows along with those who did the actual killing.
 
However, while covering the trial a Philadelphia newspaper reporter's observation caused a national sensation. He reported that all six defendants had blue eyes! The story has been a firmly embe dded part of Pennsylvania folklore every since.
