It was called the trial of the century ... and in 1915 brought Teddy Roosevelt to a Syracuse courtroom. Now it’s the subject of the book Theodore Roosevelt for the Defense. Authors Dan Abrams, Legal Affairs Correspondent for A-B-C News and Best Selling Author David Fisher will be here to talk about it Tuesday.
“And here locally, it was a mob scene at the courthouse, particularly when Teddy Roosevelt was on the stand.”
Onondaga Historical Association Executive Director Gregg Tripoli recalls the historic event.
