The sixth in a series of weekly historical radio shows produced on the campus of Georgetown University. The show starts with a man bemoaning his jury duty summons and an immigrant telling him he should consider it an honor because where he comes from there are no juries. We then flash back to colonial America and the tale of how John Adams defended the British officer, Thomas Preston, and 8 British soldiers. Preston commanded some troops in the Boston Massacre in 1770 and was tried for murder, but he was acquitted.
