John Marshall became the fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, taking office in 1801. Through Marshall’s leadership, the Supreme Court elevated to a co-equal branch of government with the power to invalidate state and federal laws. Marshall believed the Court could bridge what seemed like an unsolvable divide between Congress and the President, and many believe that Marshall’s influence in establishing the three-way check and balance system has been the key to making our democracy viable. Join Robert Strauss, historian and author of the recently released book, John Marshall: The Final Founder, as he explores the many accomplishments and key legal decisions of John Marshall. Specifically, Mr. Strauss will share why he believes that Marshall should be considered one of the Founding Fathers, and why what he did as the Chief Justice was not just significant, but was the glue that held the union together after the original founding days.
