These lectures, presented in observance of the U.S. Constitution bicentennial celebration, consider selected constitutionally significant law cases that occurred in Indiana. These cases are representative of U.S. constitutional development and of the relationship of Indiana to the U.S. Constitution. Patrick Furlong, in "The South Bend Fugitive Slave Case," illustrates the dangers and difficulties that occur when moral imperatives conflict with legal duties. In "Ex Parte Milligan: A Curb of Executive and Military Power," Alan Nolan states that a reversal of a conviction of treason by a military court during the Civil War occurred on the grounds that military courts lacked power to try civilians as long as civil courts were functioning. Kenneth Stevens considers the question of obscenity in "The Kinsey Customs Case and Constitutional Law," and Emma Lou Thornbrough, in "The Indianapolis School Busing Case," discusses that city's decision to eliminate school segregation. "Bible Biology: Hendren v. Indiana Textbook Commission," by Irving Fink, focuses on the issue of evolution versus creationism, while David Papke offers conceptualizations and examples that develop three concepts of the Constitution: icon, as text, and as law, in "Conceptualizing the Constitution: Lessons from and for Indiana History."
