John Marshall: The Man Who Made the Supreme Court by Richard Brookhiser

When: Mon., Nov. 12, 5:30-6:30 p.m. 2018

In 1801, a genial and brilliant Revolutionary War veteran and politician became the fourth chief justice of the United States. He would hold the post for a record 34 years, expounding the Constitution he loved. Before he joined the Supreme Court, it was the weakling of the federal government, lacking in dignity and clout. After he died, it could never be ignored again. "In John Marshall: the Man Who Made the Supreme Court," biographer Richard Brookhiser chronicles America’s greatest judge and the world he made.
