This paper has been written in a sincere attempt to give a perception in depth to the scene of the famous trial. The history of the area has been studied, many of the leading characters have been interviewed personally, and a large amount of reading has been done in the records relating ot the events. Although greater emphasis has been placed upon those aspects of the case which were purely local, a number of larger factors contributing to its background and meaning have been presented briefly.
