8-17. 1886 Hanging of Andrew Jackson Lambert

In 1884 on a cold December mountain night, someone killed a Federal revenue Agent.  Was it the bootlegger or the miner?   The trail led to Andrew Jackson Lambert. Was he hung? The 1886 trial produced several different versions of what happened. Did his family produce a miracle and revive the defendant after the hanging?

Did he survive? Scott has the shade of blue story, telling what and why.
