In 1924, Mrs. Mary Shank of Myersville, MD believed that a new young woman in town, Dorothy Grandon, was giving too much attention to her husband, Lloyd.
Mary was determined to stop this behavior.
As the story of events unfolded, both Dorothy and Mary were jailed in the same cell awaiting trial.
Come and hear about the trial and punishment of those involved.
The public is invited, free.
