The Kentucky Tragedy involved the 1825 murder of Colonel Solomon Sharp, one of Kentucky’s most prominent politicians, by Jereboam Beauchamp. Shortly after the murder, Joseph Hutton of New Bern wrote a dramatic play based on the Tragedy. Sharp’s brother claimed he had additional information for the play, and ultimately Hutton’s play was never produced.
