"I regard it as an impious and detestable maxim that in matters of government the majority of a people has the right to do everything, and nevertheless I place the origin of all powers in the will of the majority. Am I in contradiction with myself?"

Welcome students and parents. This site is designed to assist students in Mr. Crown's classes at Lincoln Park High School. This site is a work in progress, so hopefully I will be able to provide you with more useful links in the near future. Currently I have only a few links of interest to parents and students, class notes, and course overviews which all students must familiarize themselves with. Enjoy the site and do not hesitate to e-mail me with suggestions for my site and United States history, government, law, and politics related links.
