 United States Supreme Court

“Justice the Guardian of Liberty”

are the words under Hermon MacNeil’s

EAST  PEDIMENT

To see Hermon MacNeil’s sculpture walk to

the back of the SUPREME COURT Building

SECOND ST NE

May 16, 1932 Note regarding the East Pediment Inscription The text, in the hand of Charles Evans Hughes, reads, I rather prefer “Justice the Guardian of Liberty””

~~~~~ 0 ~~~~~

 “Equal Justice Under the Law”

are the words under Robert Aitken’s

WEST PEDIMENT

~~~~~ 0 ~~~~~

Both PEDIMENTS celebrate JUSTICE

“Equal Justice Under the Law”

“Justice the Guardian of Liberty”

These are just two ways that Beaux Arts

Sculptors sought to preserve JUSTICE

for the PEOPLE  in our “CITY BEAUTIFUL”

Washington, D. C.

Let’s Hope Our Nine Justices do their Part for  Justice in years to come!
