Henry Brockholst Livingston was born in New York City.  He was a lieutenant colonel during the Revolutionary War, participated in the siege of Ticonderoga, and was aide-de-camp to Major General Benedict Arnold at the Battle of Saratoga.  In 1802, he was appointed to the New York Supreme Court.  In 1806, President Thomas Jefferson nominated Livingston as an associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court.  During Livingston’s tenure on the Court, his votes and opinions closely followed those of Chief Justice John Marshall.  In that era, the Supreme Court Justices were required to ride a circuit, and in Livingston’s case, he presided over cases in New York State.

US Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest federal court of the United States, established in 1788 pursuant to Article Three of the U.S. Constitution.  It has the ultimate jurisdiction over all federal and state court cases involving federal laws.  The Court normally consists of the Chief Justice and eight associate justices, who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.  Justices have lifetime tenure unless they resign, retire or are removed after impeachment.  The Supreme Court is one of the three branches of the federal government which also includes the Executive (President) and Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives).

The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history.  The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton.  He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia-tone.  The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
