The trial of my great-great-grandfather Wilhelm Schmidt for the murder of George Kramer began on the 23rd of February, 1914 and ended on the 28th of February, 1914. Coverage of the trial was front-page news in the Wausau Daily Herald all five days it was held. I wanted to put everything I found in the local paper about the trial in one place. There are a few articles around the time of George’s death, and then the coverage of the trial itself. I’m planning to write an account of the trial based on these articles, but having the original source material online seems valuable.
