I Am Murdered
In I Am Murdered: George Wythe, Thomas Jefferson, and the Killing That Shocked a New Nation, respected historian Bruce Chadwick probes the darker secrets of Richmond, Virginia, and the period—including autopsies, early 19th-century forensics, race relations, and the law—to offer a compelling look at early American society.
Complete with a satisfying account of Wythe's ultimate revenge and a poignant depiction of his deep and abiding friendship with Jefferson, I Am Murdered is part American tragedy, part CSI circa 1806, and all intriguing examination of the unjust death of a Founding Father.

A true life What Happened and Who Did It to a major figure in Colonial America. This historically accurate trsgic tale of murder and revenge ... and generosity too ... is inherently interesting in this well written book that is a pleasure to read. The story is compelling as pages turn and details are revealed. I recommend it to everyone interested in George Wythe, law, history, and forensics.
