    • Abstract:
      Comments on the exhumation of the remains of US President Zachary Taylor, to enable scientists to examine samples of Taylor's hair, fingernails and bones for traces of arsenic poisoning. Florida writer Clara Rising believes he may have been murdered, possibly by proslavery Southerners angered by his support for the admission of California and New Mexico into the Union as free states.
