* Commonwealth v. Aves

The ftpg. has an item on the interment of Aaron Burr's remains. Inside has four pages of text concerning: "the Boston Save Case", being the case of the slaver girl Med. See this hyperlink for much more on this historic case, which established a precedent in law that slavery was local & liberty general. This precedent was widely appealed to by antislavery forces in their future litigation. Terrific detail in this report.
