This Day in Binghamton History: Public shaming (1848)


AUGUST 26 – Today in Binghamton History we have another instance of public shaming.

William Rose was a prominent citizen of Binghamton back in 1848.

However, the Rose daughters didn’t share his reputation.

Once word got out that the daughters could no longer be respected or trusted, angry crowds gathered outside the family home.

The groups wanted to draw attention to and shame the girls by throwing stones, clubs and firing shots.
