Allison Hinman, deputy director of the Anthony Museum, will speak on "William Seward and the Freeman Trial." You might remember William Seward as Lincoln's Secretary of State, but in the 1840s he was the first to use the insanity defense in the case of William Freeman, a Black man accused of murder.
