Fact #39855


Short story:

Rich young Baltimore, Maryland, USA, farmer William Zantzinger is jailed for just six months for the murder of Hattie Carroll, a black barmaid. Zantzinger struck her with a walking cane and she died later the same day. When Bob Dylan reads news reports of the killing, he is so angered that he writes his song The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll.
