Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness... Equal justice under the law .... Of the
people, by the people, for the people ... a nation conceived in liberty .....
Enduring phrases such as these, memorialized in our nation's history, are
familiar and beloved to all of us. Concepts such as freedom, justice, equality, and civil rights are woven into the warp and
woof of our country's societal fabric, and it is these foundational concepts which make our legal system what it is today.
This corner of our website is not strictly related to the law itself,
but rather to the people, principles, and events that have made our legal system possible ... and to vignettes
from our shared American heritage. Thank you for taking the time to consider these thoughts.
