Boyington Oakleigh Festival

In 1835, unqualified jurors and circumstantial evidence determined the fate of journeyman printer, poet, and musician, Charles Boyington, a nineteen-year-old hanged for the murder of his chronically ill best friend. As he predicted would happen to prove his innocence, an oak tree grew from his gravesite in Mobile, Alabama. It still stands 186 years later.
