I am murdered: the Tale of George Wythe

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/websites/teachinghistory.org/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.

Of the 56 individuals who signed the Declaration of Independence, only a handful are remembered. This podcast produced by Colonial Williamsburg tells the tale of one less illustrious signer: George Wythe. According to interviewer Harmony Hunter, "his is the story of a noble life, and one that ends with a surprising murder mystery." Listen as Hunter interviews Chris Hull—one of Colonial Williamsburg's many historic reenactors—to discover the story of this often overlooked historic figure.
