Trevor Grabhorn 10/4/10 Period 2 Identifications Chapter 7 Judiciary Act of 1789- The United States Judiciary Act of 1789 (ch. 20, 1 Stat. 73-93) was a landmark statute adopted on September 24, 1789 in the first session of the First United States Congress establishing the U.S. federal judiciary. Article III, section 1 of the Constitution prescribed that the "judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court," and such inferior courts as Congress saw fit to establish. It made no provision, though, for the composition or procedures of any of the courts, leaving this to Congress to decide. Bill of Rights- is the name by which the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution are known.They were introduced by James Madison to the First United States Congress in 1789 as a series of legislative articles, and came into effect as Constitutional Amendments on December 15, 1791, when they had been ratified by three-fourths of the States.The Bill of Rights is a series of limitations on the power of the United States Federal government, protecting the natural rights of personal and intellectual liberty and of property and acting as a guarantee of essential rights and liberties, including freedom of speech, a free press, free assembly and association, and prohibiting the federal government from depriving any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.

He was the principal author of the US Constitution, and is often called the "Father of the Constitution".

The first president to have served in the United States Congress, he was a leader in the 1st United States Congress, drafting many basic laws, and was responsible for the first ten amendments to the Constitution and thus is also known as the "Father of the Bill of Rights." Hamilton's Report on a National Bank- That a National Bank is an Institution of primary importance to the prosperous administration of the Finances, and would be of the greatest utility in the operations connected with the support of the Public Credit. ...
