Franklin County's Famous 1935 Moonshine Conspiracy Trial
Complete Daily Newspaper Accounts
Including Author Sherwood Anderson's Liberty Magazine Story
Compiled by Morris Stephenson, Beverly Merritt, and Angie Leary
The U.S Government’s actual transcripts of the 1935 Franklin County Moonshine Conspiracy Trial were accidentally destroyed by nature several years/months after the trail had concluded. Transcripts of the government’s Grand Jury testimony were not lost. The only written records that still exist are those written by reporters from Franklin County’s nearby daily newspapers. Each story appearing in “The Roanoke Times”, along with the story’s headlines, were retyped for this publication.
