Summary
"Capitol punishment is the greatest political and moral controversy in New Hampshire today. But often forgotten is that the debate over the death penalty began in 1739, when the first persons were hanged in Portsmouth. This book exhumes the shocking origins of the capitol punishment controversy in the Granite State, and explores the history of other taboo topics, including abortion, body snatching, and suicide. Readers will be rewarded with an illuminating journey into dark and dirty corners of New Hampshire's past." --Publisher's description
