Volume 4 assembles a selection of documents illustrating the statuory development of the federal judiciary from 1789-1800. Beginning with a narrative essay on the background of Article III of the Constitution, the volume tracks, from the First through the Sixth Congresses, all the major and minor legislation relevant to the establishment of the American judicial system. As the decade unfolded, experience revealed problems with the system as it was initially structured, and efforts were made to change it. Dissatisfaction with circuit riding, with the method of juror selection, and with judges undertaking duties not strictly judicial, for example, led to various legislative attempts at reform.
