Chief Justice John Marshall

Save 30% on this 1955 Mint Plate Block of 4

 

Born in 1755, 21 years before American independence, John Marshall rose through the ranks to become America's longest-serving Chief Justice. Raised in a log cabin in rural Virginia, and the oldest of fifteen children, Marshall served in the Continental Army in the American Revolution, and studied law while in the Army. Entering politics while running a private law practice, he served as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and was later elected to the House of Representatives. President John Adams chose Marshall as his Secretary of State, where he ended a brief war with France.

 

In early 1801 Adams nominated Marshall to the Supreme Court to replace Chief Justice Oliver Ellsworth, who had recently resigned. He remained Chief Justice for 34 years, serving under six Presidents and making numerous influential rulings that helped strengthen both the role of the Supreme Court and the power of the Constitution. Upon his death in 1835, the Liberty Bell was rung where according to legend the bell received its famous crack.

 

On the 200th anniversary of Marshall's birth, September 24, 1955, the U.S. Post Office issued this 40-cent definitive stamp in the Liberty Series. Add this rarely seen mint plate block to your collection today and save 30% off our regular price! (US #1050)
