A Prison dorm at the Milledgeville Prison where Leo Frank was
Incarcerated from June 22, 1915 to August 16, 1915
Leo Frank was attacked at the State Farm Prison in Milledgeville on July 17, 1915, by a fellow convict named William Creen, who slashed Leo’s throat using a 7 inch butcher knife. Two inmate doctors got to Frank in the nick of time and stitched him up. Frank lingered between life and death for several weeks, but finally recovered. The wound was slow to heal in the boiling humid heat of the 1915 Georgian Summer. The wounds would split open again a month later, during the culmination of the Leo Frank case.
