John Marshall was able to navigate the disputes between Washington, Hamilton, and the Federalists versus Monroe, Madison, and the states’ rights advocates. However, the chasm between Marshall and Jefferson may have been too great to bridge. Marshall defined the powers and conduct of the U.S. Supreme Court by empowering judicial review which is still relevant today. He presided over two landmark cases which defined the Federal powers as they exist today: Marbury v. Madison and McCulloch v. Maryland. It is a remarkable story overlooked in American history.
