After a couple months hiatus we return with our good friend Jodi McDaniel Lowery and talk about her first book EULA: The First Woman in Georgia to be Sentenced to the Electric Chair. (Check out first interview with her here).
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Eula was born an Elrod but used several last names during her tumultuous life, some legally, others questionable. Although few considered Eula “drop dead gorgeous,” she used her female wit and wiles to persuade men to do her bidding.
She was accused of bootlegging (illegally transporting moonshine from Georgia to Tennessee), robbery, conspiracy, bigamy, running a house of prostitution, and murder-- all before she was 25 years old. Eula’s father reportedly told a relative that he thought that Eula was the meanest woman who ever lived in Murray County. She was the first woman in Georgia sentenced to die in the electric chair, at a time before Murray County even had electric service.
Governor Hardman personally involved himself in Eula’s murder case. Newspapers across America printed stories about this rebellious woman’s exploits and legal entanglements.
