Everyone's been working mighty hard of late; lots of serious work going on in the 1L classes and in the faculty offices, too. And we've had a lot of sad and tragic news -- the passing of Richard Nagareda, Rhys Isaac, and now Louis Henkin.
It's time for a break and something less serious, like lawyer house trivia.
What famous lawyer owned the house at right? Here are a couple of hints. The house is in Richmond, Virginia. Its owner was an important antebellum lawyer and he was also a novelist and, sort of, historian. In fact he wrote a famous work of "history" in this house. I put "history" in quotes because it's sort of unclear how much of the "history" was fact and how much fiction.
