Before the Court
This chapter focuses on how the United Illinois and Wabash Land Companies brought their claim before the Supreme Court of the United States. No further petitions would be submitted to Congress, at least until the Companies had received a favorable decision from the high court. All of the Companies' resources, and all of Robert Goodloe Harper's creative energies, would be devoted to crafting and prosecuting a suit to win such a decision.
