Abstract

The unhappy image of Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney painted by those who hated him for the decision in the Dred Scott case has obscured the real man—kind, affectionate, consumed with love for his family. Using materials uncovered for a biography of Taney, Mr. Lewis writes of the family life of the Chief Justice, ending with the tragic year of 1855, which brought his wife's and daughter's deaths and introduced Dred Scott to the Supreme Court.
