John Marshall, an ardent Federalist along with George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, took an embarrassingly weak Supreme Court and made it equal to the other two branches of government. He did for the justice system what Hamilton did for the financial system. But he was so much more than American's longest-serving and most powerful Chief Justice. He served in all three branches of government as a congressman and as John Adams' Secretary of State. And he stood with George Washington at Valley Forge. His is a truly amazing story, that of a giant among giants.
