The Murder of Jim Fisk for the Love of Josie Mansfield

H. W. Brands

Even before he was shot dead on the stairway of the tony Grand Central Hotel in 1872, financier James Jubilee Jim Fisk, Jr., was a notorious New York City figure. From his audacious attempt to corner the gold market in 1869 to his battle for control of the geographically crucial Erie Railroad, Fisk was a flamboyant exemplar of a new financial era marked by volatile fortunes and unprecedented greed and corruption. But it was his scandalously open affair with a showgirl named Josie Mansfield that ultimately led to his demise.

In this riveting short history, H. W. Brands traces Fisks extraordinary downfall, bringing to life New Yorks Gilded Age and some of its legendary players, including Boss William Tweed, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and the railroad tycoon Jay Gould.

Thirty-nine letters from Jim Fisk to Josie Mansfield were published in the New York Herald one week after Jim Fisk’s death. To the dismay of scandal mongers, they contained no insight into his business dealings, just evidence of his love for Josie and his Josie Mansfield - Wikipedia
