NEW YORK TIMES, April 28, 1859 

* Daniel Edgar Sickles trial verdict
* Philip Barton Key murder

Page 4 has over a full column editorial headed: "The Acquittal of Mr. Sickles", which is concerning the controversial Daniel Sickles trial for the murder of Philip Barton Key, and was historic for being the first use of the temporarily insanity plea. The editorial begins: "The result of the Sickles trial takes nobody by surprise. Everybody expected it..." with much more (see photos for the beginning). The verdict of "not guilty" was handed down just two days previous.
Eight pages, very nice, clean condition.
