The trials of John Peter Zenger were about the Freedom of Press and what he did regarding that topic and being found not guilty because he had a good lawyer and he put things regarding the government in the paper.
Want to Send Crosby back to England
Why the trial?
How did it go?
John Peter Zenger Wants to put the Governor back in England and put what he has done and why he has done these things in the News Paper because he feels this is the only way to get him back in England.
The trial was to protect the government because Crosby wants to stay the Governor in Great Britain. The trail was held because Zenger published a paper criticizing Crosby.
Zenger won the argument and the jury made him Not Guilty because Zenger's lawyer convinced them that he wasn't wrong to call out the Governor for what he did and put it in the paper.
