CONGRESS AS MY GOVERNMENT:
Chief Justice John Marshall in the American Revolution (1775-1781)
Produced in co-operation with the John Marshall Foundation in Richmond, Virginia. This 6"x9" 257-page full-color glossy soft-cover was first published in 2009 ($24.95)
From bloody Great Bridge in 1775 to the battlefields of Brandywine, Germantown, and Monmouth to the misery of Valley Forge, John Marshall was there! Five brutal years in the field transformed America's greatest Supreme Court Chief Justice from raw militia lieutenant into battle-hardened company commander in George Washington's Continental Army. And, as General Washington's deputy judge advocate, Marshall took the first step along a path that would lead to the highest court in the land.
"Adds whole new layers of context to Marshall's life and legacy by providing the first detailed account of his military career"
- Charles Hobson, author of The Great Chief Justice and editor of The Papers of John Marshall at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg , Virginia.
