    Higginsville, Mo. Serves as the Final Resting Place for Confederate Veterans

    Just south of Lexington, the Confederate Memorial State Park in Higginsville, Missouri, is the site of the Confederate Soldiers Home and Cemetery. The home offered shelter to displaced veterans of the South from the end of the Civil War until 1950, when the very last rebel soldier residing in the home died. Visitors can stroll the tranquil grounds and tour the park’s farmhouse, cottage and beautifully-restored chapel. In the nearby cemetery, the Confederate Memorial Monument stands in tribute to these veterans who fought for the Lost Cause and the memory of the Old South. Among these men lies another, more deadly Confederate – William Quantrill. As a leader of the…

    The Legislative Branch at the State Level

    Today we will learn about the Legislative Branch at the State level. The Constitution has an interesting way of explaining the powers of the States. The Tenth Amendment states, that many powers not given to the Federal government, but not specifically denied to the States belong to the States. These are known as Reserved Powers.

    Public Piracy of Private Property? Allen v. Cooper [Fourth Branch]

    Can state governments use images without paying royalties to the creator? Frederick Allen is the exclusive photographer and videographer of the Queen Anne’s Revenge, an 18th century shipwreck off the coast of North Carolina. In 2013, he found the state was using his footage on state websites without consent or compensation even though he had federal copyright protection for the material. Allen and North Carolina ended the dispute with a settlement agreement that the state pay him royalties for all past usages, but the state continued to use the material without compensating Allen and in 2015 the state passed a law, Blackbeard’s Law, which makes all photographs and video of…

    John Baker: What Should be Done to Address Rising Crime Rates?

    President Trump had said in January, not long after his inauguration, he had said to Chicago that if you can’t fix the rising murder rates, I’ll, quote, “send in the feds.” In terms of federalism, the federal government ought not simply to try to go in and take over what a city can’t or won’t do. People deserve the protection for their life and property, and that’s the first responsibility of local government. If you won’t do it, then it should go to the next level, and that is the state government. But when the state can’t deal with it, there is in the Constitution a little-known clause called the…
