VIRTUAL TALK: “John Marshall: The Final Founder” with Robert Strauss
July 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
JOHN MARSHALL: THE FINAL FOUNDER
At the turn of the 19th century, John Marshall became the fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. At the time, the Supreme Court met in the basement of the new Capitol building in Washington—which is just about what the executive and legislative branches thought of the judiciary. Marshall changed all that. He instigated many policies that shaped not only the Supreme Court but our entire government. And by making the Supreme Court stronger, he showed how it could bridge the divide between Congress and the President and create a three-way check and balance system that made our democracy viable. His contemporaries considered him the equal of other founding fathers: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. The Final Founder asserts that title.
