His father was a Boston Tea Party “Indian.” He graduated second in his class from Harvard, was a U.S. Representative, then was elected Massachusetts Speaker of the House.
At age 32, he was appointed as the youngest Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.
His name was Joseph Story, and he died SEPTEMBER 10, 1845.
Joseph Story served on the Supreme Court for 34 years.
He helped establish the illegality of the slave trade in the Amistad case, 1841.
When the Supreme Court ruled against the Democrat’s Indian Removal Act (Worcester v. Georgia, 1832), Justice Joseph Story wrote March 4, 1832:
“Thanks be to God, the Court can wash their hands clean of the iniquity of oppressing the Indians and disregarding their rights.”
Unfortunately, the Democrat President ignored the decision. In the early period of American history, there were few “law schools,” as the common way to become an attorney was to apprentice with a lawyer.
Joseph Story helped establish the Law School at Harvard, the nation’s oldest continuously operating law school, stating in a speech there in 1829:
“There never has been a period of history, in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundation.”
In 1833, Joseph Story commented on the pamphlet “The Relation of Christianity to Civil Government in the United States” written by Rev. Jasper Adams, President of the College of Charleston, South Carolina:
“I have read it with uncommon satisfaction. I think its tone and spirit excellent. My own private judgment has long been (and every day’s experience more and more confirms me in it) that government can not long exist without an alliance with religion; and that Christianity is indispensable to the true interests and solid foundations of free government.”
