2009 - 09 - 12 - Temporary Insanity
I was delighted to see this good-natured but gaudily dressed African tourist happily waving to my camera while standing next to giant statues of naked babies.
Why? Because the incongruous spectacle seemed just perfect for the southeast corner of Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C., which is the very spot where the first instance of judicially recognized temporary insanity in America occurred at about 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 27, 1859.
Let me go a bit further back in time. Dan Sickles was a Tammany Hall machine politician who in 1859 was nearing the end of his first term as a Congressman from New York. Sickles was a colorful character, who was well known for his profligate sex life. He was once censured by the New York state Assembly for bringing Fanny White, the well known madam of a local bordello, onto the floor of the Assembly.
In 1852, Sickles fell in love with and married the beautiful Teresa Bagioli; at the time of the marriage Sickles was 33 and Bagioli was 15. The marriage was apparently happy - though that did not deter Sickles from leaving his pregnant young wife behind in New York when he was sent to London as a U.S. diplomat, accompanied by his hooker friend Fanny White, whom he presented at the court of Queen Victoria under an assumed name.
After being elected as a congressman from New York City, Sickles, his young wife Teresa, and their daughter moved in 1857 into a house on Lafayette Square, directly across from the White House. Sickles was a gregarious man who made friends easily and one of his new friends in Washington was Philip Barton Key, the District Attorney for Washington, D.C. and the son of Francis Scott Key, author of "The Star Spangled Banner."
By late 1858, virtually everyone in Washington society was aware of the torrid and flagrantly public affair between Philip Key and Teresa Bagioli Sickles. In February, Sickles was tipped off to the affair by an anonymous note. After days of emotional anguish and crying jags, Sickles confronted the 23 year old Teresa, who admitted to the affair and gave a written confession, in which she stated that she had been to a house on 15th Street with Key four times where, in a bed on the second floor, "I did what is usual for a wicked women to do .... I undressed myself. Mr. Key undressed also." Mrs. Sickles also confessed that in the Sickles family home, "Mr. Key has kissed me in this house a number of times. I do not deny that we have had connection in this house, last spring, a year ago, in the parlor, on the sofa."
Unsurprisingly, this confession did not calm Dan Sickles' agitated emotions. The next day, Sunday, around 2 p.m., Sickles looked out the window and saw Key standing outside, waving his handkerchief toward Teresa's bedroom window (witnesses later testified that they had often seen Key give such a signal to Teresa).
Enraged, Sickles shouted "that villain is out there now, making signals," grabbed two deringers and a revolver, and went out to confront Sickles in the park (approximately where the man in the African clothes is waving in this photo).
Sickles shouted, "Key, you scoundrel, you have dishonored my bed -- you must die" and fired the revolver. He missed; Key ducked behind a tree; Sickles followed and took aim again. Key took an opera glass from his pocket (which he ordinarily used to watch for Teresa's response to his signals) and threw it at Sickles, to no effect. Sickles shot again, and struck Key in the upper thigh. Key pitched into the gutter and cried, "Don't shoot me! Murder!" Sickles fired again, but the weapon misfired. He then fired a fourth time, hitting Key in the abdomen. At this point a friend intervened and walked Sickles away from the scene. As he left, Sickles asked, "Is the damned scoundrel dead yet?" Key died a few minutes later.
Sickles pleaded temporary insanity, which was the first time the defense had been used in an American court, and the jury, which was likely motivated by 19th century notions of honor, quickly acquitted Sickles.
The event ruined Sickles' political career -- not because he had murdered Key, but because he forgave Teresa for her adultery and resumed their marriage. In the public eye, this was unforgivable behavior. Dishonored, Sickles served out his second term in the House of Representatives and retired to New York City ....
This is already too long, but if you have any interest in American history you should pick up one of the biographies of Sickles -- here I'll just note that the remainder of his career included a seance with Mary Todd Lincoln in the White House and an affair with the Queen of Spain. I'll also note that I have actually seen Sickles, or at least a part of him, and you can too. His shattered right leg is still on display in the Walter Reed Medical Museum in Washington, D.C.
Sickles (less one leg) is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
Rutan Journeay House
Tottenville, Staten Island, New York City, New York
The Rutan-Journeay House at 7647 Amboy Road, built ca. 1848, is a rare survivor of early Tottenville, an important 19th-century town on Staten Island’s South Shore. This vernacular clapboard cottage merges older local building traditions with newer Greek Revival modes. Its doorway and porch are excellent examples of the Greek Revival style. The front porch features four square pillars and simple, but sophisticated, railings, in original condition. Sharing architectural forms with other early Tottenville houses, it is one of the best-preserved houses representing the early building traditions of Staten Island’s South Shore.
The Rutan-Journeay House is one of the earliest documented houses of newly created Tottenville, and the first on Amboy Road. Through its first two owners the house has close ties to the shipbuilding industry, which flourished in Tottenville from its beginnings in the 1840s through the early 20th century. Shipbuilding and ship repair were important partners of the oyster industry that created the town.
DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS
Tottenville is located on the shore of the Arthur Kill near Ward’s Point, the southwestern tip of Staten Island and the southernmost point in New York City and New York State. Far from the urban culture of Manhattan, Tottenville remains an isolated village. Across the Arthur Kill lies the city of Perth Amboy, New Jersey. South of Ward’s Point is the Raritan Bay. The village of Tottenville came into being around 1840. Its economy and culture arose from oyster fishing, shipbuilding and ship repair, and agriculture. Its trade routes with New Jersey and New York City linked it to the metropolitan region and the greater world. It became the largest town in Westfield, the historic name for this quarter of Staten Island. Even today, though encroached upon by modern suburban culture, the feeling of a small coastal town prevails with characteristics unlike any other place on Staten Island. Tottenville residents prize their isolated location.
Before There Was Tottenville
Long before Europeans arrived in the New World, Native Americans of the Lenni Lenape group of the Delaware Nation were attracted to the beauty of the elevated shoreline and the abundance of oysters growing in the Arthur Kill and Raritan Bay. Major archaeological evidence of their encampments and burial grounds has been found on Ward’s Point. By 1670 the Lenape had sold their land to European colonists and had departed from Staten Island.
Christopher Billopp, an Englishman, was the first European to settle in the area. He arrived in New York harbor with Major Edmund Andros in 1674. Andros became the Royal Governor of New York and Billopp, an officer in the British navy, was commissioned Lieutenant. In 1677 Billopp laid claim to 932 acres on Staten Island, soon thereafter building an imposing two-story stone house on the shore overlooking Perth Amboy. In 1687 he was given a royal charter for 1600 acres (including the original 932 acres) and made Lord of the Manor of Bentley. The manor would include today’s Tottenville, Richmond Valley, Pleasant Plains and part of Prince’s Bay. Billopp owned slaves and as captain of the ship Depthford he was involved in the slave trade. Although Billopp stayed on Staten Island only intermittently, his wife apparently lived in the manor house and improved his land for farming. His grandson Thomas Farmar, who changed his surname to Billopp, inherited the manor in 1732 and lived there full time. Thomas Farmar Billopp also owned slaves. Thomas’s son Christopher Billopp (17321827) lived in the stone house through much of the American Revolution. During his ownership the house was plundered by both Hessian soldiers and American patriots and Christopher sought refuge in his father-in-law’s house nearby. During one of these raids the patriots carried off Billopp’s cattle, horses and a slave. Little else is known about the actual daily life of the manor. The Billopp House was the meeting place for the Peace Conference held on Sept. 11, 1776. John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Edward Rutledge met with Lord Howe. The conference was unsuccessful and the war continued. (Today the Billopp House, a designated New York City Landmark, is called the Conference House.) In 1782 Christopher Billopp began to sell large portions of the manor. Among the buyers were members of the Totten family. In 1783 Billopp left Staten Island.
The Totten Family
John Totten (d. 1785), a weaver, was probably the first Totten to settle on Staten Island. In 1767 he purchased land on Prince’s Bay from the executors of the estate of Thomas Billopp. Gilbert Totten (ca. 1740-1819), John Totten’s son, purchased four parcels in what would become Tottenville. Gilbert was a farmer and according to the 1790 census owned five slaves. Gilbert and Mary Butler Totten, his wife, were among the founders of the Woodrow Methodist Church, the mother church
