Josefa Segovia
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
[Add Flowers]
So Miss Segovia MAY have been a saloon girl who was accused (but never convicted; important distinction) of a past crime, carried a knife and had a temper....these reasons sufficiently justify being lynched by a mob? If so, then half the women in Georgetown today would swing tomorrow.Miss. Segovia deserved the fair trial she was deprived of never being able to not receive. (Think about that)Would you have left those comments justifying her murder if she had been a white woman?

Josefa fatally stabbed a man and had been accused of doing this in two other unrelated and entirely separate situations, involving two other men. She was a knife carrying, saloon girl with a bad temper and not Joan Of Arc. Flag this comment if you wish, but this is history and not fiction.
