Description

Throughout American history people have protested and broken the law. Once in court, they often have tried to use their trials to advance their causes. In the 1960s and 1970s, many people sought to use the courtroom to denounce racial segregation and the Vietnam War. In the 1980s and 1990s, many others tried to turn their trials into an attack on abortion. Before the Civil War, John Brown, a tireless crusader against slavery, fought his last battle against slavery in an American courtroom.
