Tennessee Supreme Court Decision in Rankin v State

It's amusing how one can find more information after stopping to look for it. I had ended my search for information on the US Supreme Court case Rankin vs State of Tennessee, but after running a simple search to make sure I had the right facts on Samuel E. Rankin, I turned up a Report of Cases Argued and Determined at the Supreme Court of Tennessee in 1867 via Google Books (see source).

The full decision runs about 15 pages. I'm looking for a way to embed a PDF so I don't have to copy & paste huge images into a blog post.

It is useful to have the full picture, from the Circuit Court to Tennessee Supreme Court and on up to the US Supreme Court in this case. There's enough information for a book based on just this case & the incidents leading up to it.
