After twenty years, he sued for restoration of his lands.
On the steps of Congress Hall on the 17th July 1880 he finally had a heart attack and died - a dead beggar with a treatise in his pocket which according to law he could claim the greatest fortune in the history of the World!!!!
The other eleven moments in History are equally amazing - A GREAT WRITER!!!!
