The Hon. Jon Blue
will discuss his recently published
book: The Case of the Piglet's Paternity: Trials
from the New Haven Colony, 1639-1663.
In the middle of the seventeenth century judges in New Haven Colony presided
over a series of trials ranging from murder and bestiality, to
drunken sailors, frisky couples, faulty shoes and shipwrecks.
The cases were reported in an unusually vivid manner, allowing
readers to witness the twists and turns of fortunes as the participants battled with life and liberty at stake. Judge
Blue's book assembles thirty-three of the most significant trials of the time.
