The Great New Orleans Kidnapping Case: Race, Law, and Justice in the Reconstruction Era

The author was one of the guests discussing The Slaughterhouse Cases on Landmark Cases and this grew out of his research. It is an engaging true life Law & Order episode, 1870s style hurt by the fact we aren't left with a clear knowledge of what truly happened. Colorful mixture of characters ripe for filming, but might add a solution there. Here, the case looks doomed early, and we are barely half-way in. Net result is somewhat depressing.
