The years capitalism flourished

The South thrived under the new government because there was virtually no regulations by the government.

Although there was some resistance to the government over constitutional matters. The resistance was mainly over how much power the federal government should have.

The First Constitutional Battle

Madison, legal case in which, on February 24, 1803, the U.S. Supreme Court first declared an act of Congress unconstitutional, thus establishing the doctrine of judicial review. The court’s opinion, was written by Chief Justice John Marshall.

Judicial review is the power of courts to decide the validity of acts of the legislative and executive branches of government. If the courts decides that a legislative act is unconstitutional, it is nullified. … The power was first asserted by Chief Justice John Marshall in 1803, in the case of Marbury vs. Madison.

That statement is horse-pucky, per the U.S. Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, The court can only review a law that is brought before it through a law suit.
