Summary
The Kingston Trio?s folk song <U+0027>(3z<U+0027>(BTom Dooley<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B tells the story of the murder of Laura Foster, a simple country girl involved with returning Confederate soldier Tom Dula. But Tom was also engaged in a passionate affair with his childhood sweetheart, the beautiful, and married, Ann Melton. One May morning in 1866, Laura Foster stole her father?s horse and left home, telling a neighbor that she was eloping to Tennessee. Three months later her body was found in a shallow grave only a few hundred yards from where she was last seen. The sensational elements in the case attracted national attention: a man and his married lover accused of murdering the other woman; the former governor of North Carolina, spearheading the defense; and a noble gesture from the condemned man on the eve of his execution, saving the woman he really loved
