The Historic Pardon Of A Convicted Man In Nebraska Was A Century In The Making

We like to think that we’ve got this whole justice system figured out, but the truth is that sometimes, the unthinkable happens and an innocent person is convicted and jailed. People in the late 19th century didn’t have the technology we have today, so the likelihood of mistakes by the investigators was much higher than it is now.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
