Rape on the Washington Southern: The Tragic Case of Hines v. Garrett

George Mason Law & Economics Research Paper No. 09-63

Abstract:     
The judicial treatment of the tragic multiple rape of Julia Garrett, in wartime Virginia, offers interesting insights into a fascinating period in the jurisprudence of the Near-South. The economic emancipation of women and of blacks, the rapid urbanization of a heretofore rural area and the behavior of a government regulator were all backdrops for a battle royale over the meaning of "proximate cause."
