Lord, Have Mercy

 ‘Lord, Have Mercy’        People may remember the trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg who were tried in court for espionage against the United States.  They were found guilty and were sentenced to death for selling nuclear secrets to the Russians.  They died in the electric chair on June 19, 1953.   As the final […]
