Gibbons v. Ogden: John Marshall, Steamboats and the Commerce Clause
Legal Landmarks: Supreme Court Decisions that Changed America
When Robert Livingston and Robert Fulton were awarded a monopoly to navigate their steamboats on the waterways of New York state, competitors mounted a legal challenge. Herbert Alan Johnson looks at how the Supreme Court's 1824 decision determined that the federal government holds the power to regulate interstate commerce.
