John followed his dream. People helped him buy his own print shop, and he began printing articles. Some of his articles made the governor of New York angry. Even though the articles were true, the governor tried to make John stop printing them.

One day the governor had John arrested. If John was found guilty of committing a crime, he might be hanged. John's trial was for the freedom to tell the truth. Read to find out more about what happened to John Peter Zenger.
