As Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Marshall owned 200 slaves, yet 18 schools, including 3 law schools, are named after him. How is that so? Because up until 2018, all the lead "historians" on Marshall failed to mention it in their books etc. They either hid it or didn't seek the truth.
It wasn't until 2018 that people really knew how bad Marshall's slave ownership was. Thanks to Dr. Paul Finkelman. All the lead "scholars" before him either denied or buried the fact that he was a slave master who traded in slaves. To this day, those same scholars fail to recognize the truth. Meanwhile 18 schools carry on Marshall's name.
Marshall's opinions upheld slavery, denied many freedom, and supported the slave trade. See the cases below. His opinions are tainted by his bias toward being a slave master.
Marshall ripped apart families when he needed money by selling slaves. He had two notions of justice. Yet 18 schools are named after him, including three law schools!
