It was July 1871 and former congressman Clement Vallandigham was working as a lawyer in Lebanon, Ohio, defending Thomas McGehan, who was accused of killing a man named Tom Myers during a saloon brawl. One night at the outset of the trial, Vallandigham sought to test out his defense, which suggested that McGehan hadn’t shot Myers, but that Myers had accidentally shot himself while drawing his own pistol. Clement Vallandigham was in the middle of demonstrating how the man might have accidentally killed himself — then he accidentally killed himself. He actually won the case.
