Frontier Justice

Students make an investigation into the Constitution of 1819, Article IV, Section II, gave the Governor of Alabama the power to grant reprieves and pardons in all criminal and penal cases, except those of treason and impeachment, and to remit fines and forfeitures. Citizens frequently wrote to the Governor to plead for or against the pardon of a convicted criminal. The lesson focuses upon defining terms.
