By: Erick Erickson Two hundred thirty seven years ago, our forefathers sat in a hot room with closed windows arguing over the future of the thirteen colonies they represented.  For a while they had thought of reconciliation with their motherland.  But over time it became clear that neither King nor Parliament were interested in anything other than submission.

In all his Supreme Court appointments Lincoln was cautious to appoint men to the Court who were fully sympathetic with the measures his administration devised to win the war, and who gave no indication that they would oppose the policies, often clearly unconstitutional, which Lincoln considered necessary. “The [Lincoln] administration would await no debacle, no breath-taking defeat at the hands […]
