The Indiana Supreme Court held a free CLE event, "Isaac Blackford: the Vincennes Years," on Thursday, December 6, 2012 from 3:00 - 4:30 pm in the Supreme Court.
This is a free CLE event sponsored by the Indiana Supreme Court Legal History Lecture Series and Indiana Humanities as a part of their Legal History Grant program. The program is also supported by the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education. It has been assigned course number 156499 for 1.5 hours. Registration will be completed at the door.
Isaac Blackford, Indiana’s longest serving justice, spent much of his early career in southern Indiana before making his way to Indianapolis. Blackford lived in Vincennes, from 1813-1824 and always considered it his permanent home. This lecture will attempt to reconstruct Blackford’s life in Vincennes during the last years of the Indiana Territory and the early years of Statehood.
Noted Indiana historian Richard Day will be the featured speaker. Day is one of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources onsite historians. He can be found most days at the Indiana Territorial Capitol and other historic sites in Vincennes.
