Catalogue Note

Bushrod Washington was an politician and attorney, who, after being nominated by John Adams, served as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1798 to 1829. Whilst on the Supreme Court, Bushrod Washington was a staunch ally of Chief Justice John Marshall, and also a co-founder and the president of the American Colonization Society (ACS). Bushrod inherited Mount Vernon along with his uncle's papers, and formally took possession of the property in 1802, following the death of Martha Washington.
