Transplanted to Colonial America from England, where it had been in use for centuries, the right to a public trial by a jury of one's peers is guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment to the Constitution. But it was not until 1868, when the Fourteenth Amendment was ratified, that the right to equality before the law was assured: "...no State shall...deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Starting about 1790, judges "rode circuit," bringing justice to backwoods villages and towns. When the court moved to another town, lawyers traveled in attendance.


Mort Künstler's Comments:

“Many of my friends and neighbors posed for this painting, made as part of the Bicentennial series for Exxon.”
