In the political turmoil that convulsed America after GeorgeWashington’s death, the surviving Founding Fathers went mad—literally pummelingeach other in Congress and challenging one another to deadly duels in theirquest for power. Out of the political intrigue, one man emerged to restore calmand dignity to the government: John Marshall. The longest-serving chief justicein American history, Marshall transformed the Supreme Court from an irrelevantappeals court into the powerful and controversial branch of government thatAmericans today either revere or despise.
