Volume IV assembles for the first time in one book a selection of documents illustrating the statutory development of the federal judiciary from 1789-1801. Beginning with a narrative essay on the background of Article III of the Constitution, the volume tracks, from the First through Sixth Congresses, all the major and minor legislation relevant to establishing a judicial system.;Gathered from a search of more than 800 repositories, the items published - official Congressional records, letters, diary entries, newspaper articles - demonstrate the significant role played by many of the most prominent figures in the early stages of the establishment of our federal judicial system. Oliver Ellsworth, William Paterson, John Adams, John Marshall, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson understood the importance of an independent judiciary to the future security of the nation, though they may not have agreed on how to obtain one. Their contributions are chronicled in this latest volume on the ""Documentary History"".
