Image of item
Book
"In January 1872, Josephine McCarty was indicted for murder in a shooting on a horse-drawn streetcar in Utica, New York. There were witnesses, and the common consensus was that the woman would hang. Then the governor of New York called a special term of court, and his attorney general sent a high-powered lawyer to aid the prosecution. Why? Perhaps the story was more complex than it appeared" -- Back cover.
