Description

It was April 6th, 1917 – the day the United States declared war on Germany – when young Antoinette Rappal told her mum she wanted to join the American Red Cross. But being 3,000 miles away was too far from home for a 15-year-old, and her mother said so. Three weeks later she wished she had yielded to her daughter’s wishes when Antoinette became the tragic victim in one of the most extraordinary crimes in 20th-century America, a crime that embraced murder, rape, voodoo and a horrific lynching.
