Full title: Chief Justice John Marshall, "The American population is entirely Christian, and with us, Christianity and Religion are identified."
"The power to tax involves the power to destroy," wrote Chief Justice John Marshall, McCulloch v. Maryland, 1819.
Perhaps no one had a greater impact on the development of Constitutional Law than John Marshall.
He was born SEPTEMBER 24, 1755, and was home schooled as a youth.
At the beginning of the Revolutionary War, John Marshall served with the Culpeper Minutemen.
Marshall joined the Continental Army and served as a captain in the Virginia Regiment under General George Washington, enduring the freezing winter at Valley Forge.
John Marshall later described George Washington:
"Without making ostentatious professions of religion, he was a sincere believer in the Christian faith, and a truly devout man."

John Marshall studied law at the College of William and Mary under Chancellor George Wythe, as did also Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, Henry Clay, and Supreme Court Justice Bushrod Washington, the nephew of George Washington.
George Wythe was a prominent opponent of slavery, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, and, with George Mason, he designed the Seal of Virginia with the motto Sic Semper Tyrannis (Thus Always to Tyrants).
Following George Wythe's example of public service, John Marshall was elected a U.S. Congressman from Virginia, and became Secretary of State under President John Adams.
John Adams nominated John Marshall to the Supreme Court, where, on February 4, 1801, he swore in as the fourth Chief Justice.
Marshall served 34 years on the Supreme Court, which met in the basement of the U.S. Capitol Building.

RE: The American population is entirely Christian, and with us, Christianity and Religion are identified
Hey, things change as we open up immigration to the world.
“He was home schooled as a youth.” Of course he was. There were NO public schools then. Everyone who could afford it had a paid, private tutor.
Those were the “good old days,” when people didn’t lock their houses, when children learned their responsibility toward God and each other, when no one cursed in front of a lady and there were ladies.
Diversity is completely inferior to unity.
