The Redwood Library is wecoming home one of the most important trial accounts in early American history. The original volume, printed in 1744, has been missing from the Library's Original Collection for more than 200 years. A panel discussion of the journal, which details the trials, verdicts and executions of thirty-four New York City residents accused of conspiring to burn down the town, will be held at the Library on May 11.
The distinguished panel, featuring Judge Joseph W. Bellacosa, retired from the New York State Court of Appeals, Judge Frank Williams, former chief justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court, and Keith Stokes, chairman of the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation, will be followed by a wine and cheese reception. Attendance is limited to 100 people.
