A Visual History of the Supreme Court of the United States by Timeplots
This timeplot is a visual history of the Supreme Court of the United States from the original six justices in 1789 to the present-day nice-justice Court. It combines biographical information on every Supreme Court justice with a visualization of the influence of U.S. presidents and their political parties on the Court overtime, and includes vote counts and summaries of landmark cases.
The central river represents a timeline of every justice's tenure. Each line is colored according to the party of the appointing president, as are the numbered circles at the start of each justice's tenure.
