No Pants for the Chief Justice

Record #:
In the early 1800s, the Supreme Court was held in such low esteem in some parts of the country that the legendary Chief Justice John Marshall was declined tailor service in Raleigh. One of Marshall’s letters written from Raleigh on January 2, 1803, offers an insight into the great man’s ways. Marshall also gives his perspective on several North Carolina Federalists and Supreme Court judges.
