A newspaper illustration of the assassination of J. B. Friedman in Boutte, June 11, 1888. The building was his store in the front, with the family home behind. Mr. Friedman was just stepping off the porch, intending to go to the railroad station nearby, when the assassin stepped around the corner and shot him. He was taken back into his house, and a doctor called, but he died before midnight. The assassin got away, but was arrested within a few days.
