In 1735, peter zenger was tried for libel in the colony of new york. his trial established the separation of church and state. right to a fair trial. separation of government powers. freedom of the press.

Answer:

In 1735, Peter Zenger was tried for libel in the Colony of New York. His trial established the freedom of the press.

Explanation:

John Peter Zenger was an eighteenth-century printer, publisher and journalist from New York.  

Zenger had emigrated to New York from the German Palatinate region. His newspaper, the New York Weekly Journal, was funded by one of the opposition political factions in New York, probably that of James Alexander and William Smith, who used it to criticize the governor of the colony.

New York Colony Governor William Cosby filed a suit of libel against him in 1734, to end the criticism. But on August 5, 1735, the twelve jurors of New York rendered a verdict of "not guilty", without even deliberating, a judgment whose announcement was followed by three successive bursts of applause.

The next day, Zenger was released after 35 weeks of captivity. The failure of the prosecution for "venomous, slanderous and seditious" attacks against the British government was a decisive factor in the colony's assertion of an essential principle of freedom of the press: the right to criticize government authorities.

Which statement best describes the events of february 4, 1861? delegates in south carolina met to vote on whether or not to secede from the union. citizens went to the polls to vote for lincoln, douglas, breckinridge, or bell for the presidency. confederate troops fired on fort sumter and forced union soldiers to surrender. delegates from several southern states met to form a new confederate government.

On February 4, 1861, delegates from several Southern states met to form a new confederate government.

In the presidential elections of 1860, the Republicans, led by Abraham Lincoln, supported the prohibition of slavery in all the territories of the United States. The Southern states saw this as a violation of their constitutional rights and as the first step in a grand republican plan to finally abolish slavery. The three candidates in favor of the Union received an overwhelming majority of 82% of the votes at the national level. The Republican Party, dominant in the North, secured a plurality of popular votes and a majority of the electoral votes nationwide, so Lincoln was elected president constitutionally. He was the first candidate of the Republican Party to win the presidency. However, before his inauguration, seven slave states with cotton-based economies (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas) declared secession and formed the Confederation on February 4, 1861.
