11 The Supreme Court Boosts National Power
Marshall Court John Marshall, a Federalist, was appointed by John Adams in 1801 and served as Chief Justice for 34 years. He transformed nationalistic ideas into court decisions, which increased federal power and aided economic development. Marshall elevated the prestige of the Supreme Court and strengthened its power

12 Supreme Court Boosts National Power
Gibbons v. Ogden 1824-Supreme Court Case Aaron Ogden- worked for Fulton’s steamboat service Claimed only he could run a steamboat service on the Hudson Thomas Gibbons began running a steamboat service- Ogden sues and takes him to court Court rules with Gibbons-interstate commerce could only be regulated by fed. Government Long term- government can regulate ANYTHING that crosses state lines.

13 Supreme Court Boosts National Power
McCulloch v Maryland 1819-Supreme Court Case Maryland had levied a high tax on the local branch of the National Bank of the U.S.- hoped to make it fail Court ruled against Maryland and claimed the National Bank to be constitutional. One of many cases that strengthened the federal government. Chief Justice John Marshall (in office )

National interests should be placed ahead of regional concerns and foreign interests. Strongly supported by President James Monroe and Secretary of State John Quincy Adams John Quincy Adams

15 Nationalism vs. Patriotism
“Nationalism is the habit of assuming that human beings can be classified like insects and that whole blocks of millions or tens of millions of people can be confidently labeled 'good' or 'bad‘” -George Orwell He goes on to make the differentiation between “nationalism” and “patriotism.” Patriotism, Orwell states, is harmless. It is a love of native culture, and the patriot has no need to impose that culture on others. But history is indeed littered with examples of triumphal nationalism, the notion of the nation as a claim to superiority.
