Pierson v. Post, 3 Caines 175 (N.Y. 1805) is one of the most commonly assigned cases in first-year Property courses. For many years our only information about the case, other than the report itself, has been a vivid but antiquarian account published in 1895. Recent years have seen a flurry of articles that provide a great deal more insight into the case and its context. This paper summarizes the “new learning” for students and teachers of Property.
