  • @SamCordes: What do you think about a hook having to do with her trial being one of the earliest uses of the "abused wife defense"? That she was the first woman convicted is somewhat less surprising given that she was only the eighth person overall in Oregon history. It seems to be specially the early use of the abused wife defense that many of the sources connect with her notability. GMGtalk 14:33, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
    • @GreenMeansGo: Sure, that sounds good to me. Maybe something like ... that Charity Lamb's 1854 murder trial featured one of the earliest uses of the abuse defense? Feel free to adapt that however you want though. And thank you for all the improvements you made to the article! You added a lot of great content and it's significantly improved. Much appreciated, -- SamCordesTalk 16:44, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
* ALT2 ... that Charity Lamb's 1854 murder trial featured one of the earliest uses of the abuse defense?
  • Source 1: The case was noteworthy for another reason: She was one of the first American murder defendants to use the abused-wife defense.[1]
  • Source 2: Her case represents one of the earliest known self-defense arguments predicated on what today would be called the spousal abuse syndrome.[2]
  • Works for me. I'm good with alt 2 as suggested. Symbol confirmed.svg GMGtalk 16:56, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
