Mister Chief Justice. A Study Guide.
Kuehl, John W.
Intended to accompany the film "Mister Chief Justice," this study guide introduces the life of John Marshall and early U.S. history through a fictional account of a dinner party at the home of the chief justice in March, 1801. The guide presents the historical characters who attended the dinner, including John Marshall, Mary Willis Marshall, Eliza Ambler Carrington, Edward Carrington, Robin Spurlock, George Hay, Daniel Trigg, and Aaron Burr, as well as the historical events that preceded the dinner, the Whiskey Rebellion and the XYZ Affair. This guide provides primary documents and discussion questions related to the themes discussed at the dinner party, which covered the national identity, popular participation in government, and the costs of public service. The documents consist of the correspondence of John Marshall to other political leaders. A list of 18 selected works offers suggestions for other primary documents on the life of John Marshall and the politics of his day. (JD)
