What a Find: District of Columbia Boundary StonesPosted on January 27, 2015 by David Robinson
JSP you might want to forward this to the folks at Maine Republic. It backs up what they wrote about jurisdiction.
I was watching an episode of ‘America Unearthed’ on the History2 channel and the subject of the boundary stones for the District of Columbia came up and some of the stones were shown. What the stones DO NOT read is ‘Boundary of District of Columbia’, ‘Border of the District of Columbia’, ‘Limit of the District of Columbia’,’Boundary of the United States, ‘Border of the United States’, or the ‘Limit of the United States’.
What the stones DO read is ‘Jurisdiction of the United States’ (see attached photos). This is a significant find for those of you who understand law & jurisdiction. If you don’t understand law and jurisdiction check out the definition below:
Territorial Jurisdiction defined (Black’s Law 3rd Ed)
Jurisdiction considered as limited to cases arising or persons residing within a defined territory as a country, a judicial district, etc. The authority of any court is limited by the boundaries thus fixed.
I’ve been trying to educate people for years that the Federal Government has no jurisdiction outside of D.C. and the territories (except in a very few limited areas – Forts, docks, magazines). Here it is ….. written in stone.
You can view the stones and their history here:
Stories from ‘America Unearthed’ are here and possibly on youtube – well worth watching.
