No! The route should be this way
The route should go that way!
Marbury, one of the appointed judges, was very upset that the letter never came and decided to take it to the Supreme Court. He said that Madison should have done his job and delivered the letters. The judge said that it was not necessary of him to give the letters. This caused the Supreme Court to come up with judicial review.
Thomas Jefferson wanted to tax the bank but McCulloch refused to pay the tax. Maryland said they had the right to tax the business's in their state. The Supremacy Clause was created stating that they could not tax the federal bank, as well as the elastic clause which stated that if it's necessary and proper it's ok.
Gibbons and Ogden had created a monopoly with steam boats. Gibbons had a federal license while Ogden had a state license. They had argued over routs and when in at New York Ogden won. That caused Gibbons to go to the Supreme Court where his lawyer, Webster, used the Supremacy clause stating that federal was better than state.
