    George Washington may have been the Father of Our Country, but his friend John Marshall defined for the new nation what it meant to be united and to live under the rule of law.

It was considered by many to be a paper tiger, unable to enforce what rulings it issued, and unclear as to its role in the new government. Throughout his 34-year term as the nation's highest magistrate, Marshall not only gave the court this voice, but positioned the judicial branch as a non-partisan member in the tripartite of American checks and balances. In so doing, he did more than ...
