A young man murders a rival (who is half Indian and half white) and blames the murder on an Indian chief - who also happens to be the victims uncle. In spite of the willingness of the locals to simply lynch the accused, a young Thomas Jefferson insists that he be given a fair trial and attempts to discredit the story of the accuser as he defends the man. This is a good program.

Thomas Jefferson defends an Indian chief against a murder charge. He must battle the local sheriff and the prevailing attitudes of the time to get justice for an innocent man.

This was an interesting listen and kind of reminded me of the Lincoln as a lawyer episode. A good one to listen to.
