President John Adams Nominates John Marshall

"My gift of John Marshall to the people of the United States was the proudest Act of my life."

- President John Adams

When President John Adams’ letter nominating John Marshall as Chief Justice reached the Senate, it was met with some objection despite the general respect with which Marshall was regarded. The Senate’s confirmation vote was delayed for several days and attempts were made to convince the President to reconsider his choice. When it was clear that President Adams would not change his mind, the vote was taken on January 27, 1801. Marshall was unanimously confirmed.
