Summary
Wythe lived long enough to accuse his grandnephew of poisoning him and two other members of his household. Why did three prominent doctors insist that he hadn't been poisoned at all? Learn the grisly, fascinating, and often astounding tale of Wythe's murder and America's very first "trial of the century."
