The first book ever written about the historical precedent-setting case by which the Supreme Court declared itself the highest court. A lynch mob in Tennessee hanged a black man, who had been acquitted by the Supreme Court in a rape trial, with the full knowledge & acquiescence of the local government. For the first time & only time in history, the Supreme Court conducted a criminal trial to enforce its authority, bringing contempt of court & obstruction of justice charges against the local sheriff, his deputies, & members of the lynch mob.
