FLAG IN THE ROTUNDA

Looking up at Old Glory
inside the rotunda
at the Old Court House
in St. Louis.

Built in 1839,
the old Court House
is full of history and
momentous decisions,
not the least of which 
was the Dred Scott case,
where the U.S. Supreme Court
ruled against Scott (a freed slave)
because he was not a U.S. Citizen.
That was in 1857 and only the
2nd time the Supreme Court ruled
that an Act of Congresss was
unconstitutional!

In these very halls!
