United States Senate confirms Robert Grier's appointment to the Supreme Court

Robert Cooper Grier, detail
08/05/1846
This seat on the Supreme Court had been empty for two years because the Senate vetoed every nominee that President Tyler proposed. Now, a new administration under President Polk finally convinced the Senate to accept Robert Cooper Grier of Pennsylvania. (By Joanne Williams)
