Oppressive Government, the Perch of Pride

Join this blog for more interesting information about the first patriots to Virginia whose sacrifices and actions led a path to the freedom which ultimately resulted in the American Dream.

Lord Howard created a new court of chancery from the general district court and erected himself as lord chancellor, taking the gentlemen of the council to sit with him as mere associates and advisers, not having any vote in the causes before them. Not wishing to convene in the State House, he took the dining-room of a large house for that use. From this perch, he established a table of fees peculiar to this high court. However, he soon left the country and the jurisdiction returned to the general court again, with Colonel Nathaniel Bacon as president.
