Also it was good for the instructors in teaching students about the judicial branch of the United States. I realized the most precious part in this book was the explanation of every case that lead to many historical key decisions under Marshall Court. I strongly agreed with the very last sentence of the book which was the turning point of the whole meaning the book, “ At his death the Constitution stood firmly as the supreme law of the Union, the Court had become a vital and respected organ of the government, and public anxiety and partisan maneuvering over the appointment of Marshall’s successor was widespread” (Stites
The Best and Worst of Americas Presidents Throughout U.S history there have been many good presidents and also many bad presidents. I believe that presidents should be graded on how they handle the economy, foreign policy, and equal rights. From our first president to our current president those I believe are the three most important grading points. A good economy is very important because it gives people a better living by giving them job opportunities and a way for people to make money. Foreign policy is important because it has a lot to do with the trade, technology, and communications of the United States.
The Foreign and Domestic accomplishments of the 1790’s These accomplishments began with Washington’s administration in 1789 and moved through his term to John Adams’s election in 1796. Throughout the ten year span the two men created, passed and established accomplishments need to form a better country. These foreign and domestic precedents provided the foundation for the financial, political and social structures of modern day America. In 1789 George Washington was unanimously elected to serve as the first president of the United States. Under his administration came great changes, starting with the establishment of the Cabinet in 1789.
Jefferson states his disagreements with James Madison when he says, “Our country is too large to have all its affairs directed by a single government.” (Document A). As the years went on James Madison and Thomas Jefferson started to see eye to eye. Jefferson and the Jeffersonian Republicans believed that the authority of the federal government should be based on a strict constitution. Americans should follow every rule stated in the constitution and to obey them. Jefferson stated that, “ I consider the government of the United States as interdicted the constitution.” (Document B).
General Washington could be classified with multiple leadership styles including leadership by example, a transformational leader or even a servant leader. He is considered by many to be one of the most influential leaders of all time and certainly was one of our greatest presidents. Looking first at his leadership style of leading by example, he knew that he had to set the way for the people of the United States to follow for years after his presidency and establish a norm for how the country should be governed. He has high expectations of the young country, and it was said that he “…carried a vision into his presidency and sought to ensure a well-ordered government based on both laws and reason. He believed that through using reason and being open to various viewpoints, citizens could arrive at proper laws and policies to ensure peace, prosperity, and happiness for the country (McNeilly, 168).” Washington was intelligent enough to know the importance of a strong leader in the early years of this new country.
John Jay John Jay, born 1745-1829 , was an American statesman, and the first Chief Justice of the United States. He graduated from King’s College (now Columbia Univ.) in 1764. In pre-Revolutionary actions he reflected the views of the conservative colonial merchant, opposing British actions but not favoring independence. As a delegate to the First and Second Continental Congresses he urged a moderate policy, served on various committees, drafted correspondence, and wrote a famous address to the people of Great Britain.
This old, powerful and inquisitive 83 year old shows an ample amount of individualism during the play. Giles Corey is the kind of man that says what he wants whenever he wants. He has been in court many times which has given him great knowledge of the rules of law. The reason why Giles Corey is an extreme individualist is because he does what he thinks is right and usually tells the truth. Corey will stand up for whatever he believes is right especially when he does everything possible to try and protect his wife.
Henry David Thoreau was one of the great American writers. His ideas about “Civil Disobedience” are adapted by many other great individual, like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and many others. During the civil right movement in the United States, Martin Luther King Jr. use Thoreau ideas about civil disobedience several times. King was not only a Great leader but also a great writer. He has given some of the greatest speeches, like “I Have a Dream” and many more.
John Marshall, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for 34 years, was the most influential person in regards to shaping the constitution interpretation to the conservative. John Marshall affirmed the right of judicial review over Congressional legislation; however, the Chief Justice contributed much more to the Judicial Branch and the federal government. He used his traits to position the Judiciary as a co-equal branch of the United States’ government and to prevent the states from eroding federal power after the Eleventh Amendment was ratified. He made the judicial branch of the government the most powerful, in giving it the ability to interpret acts. Some monumental cases shaped the constitution along conservative lines are Marbury v. Madison, McCulloch v. Maryland, Dartmouth v. Woodward, and Gibbons v Ogden.
Training involves hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, and a good knowledge of the Federal Justice System. Marshals provide an excellent service to America and its People, which they have gladly and happily provide. Marshals have had a long history that has helped shape the United States in some way, they also are a key part in our government today, and it takes a lot to become a United States Marshal. The Marshal Service helped established a type of Federal Task Force, whether it was helping shape the old west or in the present right now. They have always been the silent hero’s for America’s Government and its
