    schema:description "The death of domineering Trigg Maxwell in 1935 Wise, Virginia, became a national cause celebreʹ surrounding his free-spirited daughter Edith. Edith Maxwell returned home past her curfew late one July night, but it was Trigg who ended up dead on the kitchen floor. Amid Edith's claims that she was defending herself and her mother Ann from Trigg by using her high-heeled shoe to beat him, Edith also reported long-term physical and verbal violence from her father. Hatfield writes about the southwest Virginia murder trial, and how the trial addressed perspectives on domestic abuse in Depression-era America. Nationally, Edith was held up as a martyr, before her case stirred a lingering resentment toward a "mountain code" of justice."@en ;
