To this short history we would only add following two items for your consideration:

1. 1886 Supreme Court Ruling Santa Clara County V Southern Pacific Railroad.

Specifically the Headnote written by one J.C. Bancroft Davis, court reporter and former head of the Newburgh and New York Railway Company.

From Wikipedia:

“The court does not wish to hear argument on the question whether the provision in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which forbids a State to deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, applies to these corporations. We are all of the opinion that it does”

and,

2. The House Resolution #158 of 1933 put forth by Louis Thomas McFadden; who was murdered in 1936 in New York City.

From Wikipedia:

McFadden is also remembered as a “vociferous foe of the Federal Reserve,”[2] which he claimed was created and operated by European banking interests who conspired to economically control the United States. On June 10, 1932, McFadden made a 25-minute speech before the House of Representatives[3] , in which he accused the Federal Reserve of deliberately causing the Great Depression. McFadden also claimed that Wall Street bankers funded the Bolshevik Revolution through the Federal Reserve banks and the European central banks with which it cooperated. McFadden moved to impeach President Herbert Hoover in 1932, and also introduced a resolution bringing conspiracy charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve. The impeachment resolution was defeated by a vote of 361 to 8; it was seen as a big vote of confidence to President Hoover from the House.[4]

In 1933, he introduced House Resolution No. 158, articles of impeachment for the Secretary of the Treasury, two assistant Secretaries of the Treasury, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and the officers and directors of its twelve regional banks.[5]

McFadden died suddenly in 1936 on a visit to New York City and was interred in East Canton Cemetery in Canton, Pennsylvania.
