A gripping courtroom drama – the accused was a slight, frightened man who had deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus. The chief gladiators were the two great legal giants of the century. Like two bull elephants locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared at one another.

At stake was the freedom of every American. Learn more.
