Is Tshuanahusset guilty beyond a reasonable doubt?

In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about the 1868 murder of William Robinson and the subsequent conviction and hanging of an Aboriginal man named Tshuanahusset. Students then examine the evidence found in primary source documents to reach their own conclusion and prepare a written verdict explaining why the evidence does or does not provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Tshuanahusset is guilty.
