The Chase Court : Justices, Rulings, and Legacy

Front Cover
ABC-CLIO, 2004 - Law - 247 pages
"This look into the Supreme Court explains why the rulings made by Salmon Chase played a major role in healing a union divided by strong opinions and beliefs and helped reinforce the foundation of the Constitution. The examination of the justices who served on this Court, aided by a detailed representation of the time period, clearly illustrates why many of these decisions still hold a place in current legislation. The Chase Court examines a country as it recovered from the bloodiest conflict in its history and turned to the forethought of a small group of men to help lead it into peace."--BOOK JACKET.
