Summary
In a hot, crowded courtroom in colonial New York, on an August day in 1735, a jury found printer John Peter Zenger innocent of the charge of seditious libel against the British royal governor. The verdict established the political precedent for the right of people to criticize their government in print and helped shape the Bill of Rights more than fifty years later. Combining narrative with voices from primary sources, the book shows the conflict between characters that led to this momentous trial in American history.--From publisher description
