Abstract:

One of the earliest reversals demonstrated that the laws we inherited from settled England were not necessarily fitting or just when applied to a wilderness society. Another early reversal extended the rights of citizenship to corporations because, as companies grew and ownership multiplied, lawsuits that involved every stockholder would have become hopelessly complicated. Later the Court reversed itself on such landmark issues as paper money, income taxes, censorship, segregation, and women's rights. Shows the influence of men like Jefferson, Hamilton, Marshall, Roger B. Taney, Salmon P. Chase, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Charles Evans Hughes and Earl Warren on the Supreme Court.
