 The Treason Trial of Aaron Burr
Burr loved New Orleans enough to want to settle there, he said, "were it not for [his daughter] Theodosia and her boy." He used his time in New Orleans to gauge public opinion concerning Mexico and to discuss possible enterprises with persons sympathetic to a Mexican insurrection.
The examination began with District Attorney George Hay (the son-in-law of future President James Monroe) supporting the government's motion for commitment on charges of treason and "high misdemeanors." Hay argued that the evidence showed that Burr intended to take New Orleans by force and make it the capitol of his new western empire.
On June 15, General Wilkinson--described by the defense as "the alpha and omega of the present prosecution"--arrived in Richmond to appear before the grand jury.
