  • THANKS GUYS!
  • Lets resale it for money!
  • WE JUST STOLE THIS!
  • I declare 1/4 of the prize goes to Olmstead and the rest to Pennsylvania
  • Whooo!
  • The vessel and cargo should be condemned as lawful prize for the use of appellants.
  • WHOO!
  • During the Revolution War of 1775, Olmstead invaded the Active ship from Britains and brought it back to the U.S , then the Pennsylvanian captain of the Us ships took a claim for the money the ship would sell for.
  • HERE YOU GO!
  • Thank you good man! I will take care of these stocks and pay over deposits.
  • Later that year Olmstead and his crew were forcibly taken possession by the commander of the Convention, Captain Thomas Houston. Captain James Josiah claims share of the captured vessel. Court gave 1/4 to Olmstead and the rest to Pennsylvania.
  • PETERS IT ISN'T RIGHT THAT JUST BECAUSE RITTENHOUSE DIED MEANS NO ONE GETS THE MONEY! I DESERVE THAT MONEY!
  • Boy does this need to go to the Supreme Court
  • On December 15, 1778, Olmstead and others appealed to the court and were able to reverse the sentence of the State court; therefore, decreeing the condemnation of the sloop Active.
  • VICTORY!
  • Pennsylvania respectfully refused obedience towards the order and sold the Active vessel. The outcome resulted into giving the money to only one person, treasury of state David Rittenhouse.
  • In 1808 after Rittenhouse's death, Olmstead went to the District court for judge Richard Peters with the consent that Pennsylvania wanted the trial too. Should Peters act on the appeal give it all to Olmstead?
  • By the Supreme court in 1809 they ruled to give the money to Olmstead and their crew instead Pennsylvania because Pennsylvania never had jurisdiction over it and disobeyed the first order.
