    Glad to hear that there was one real American on the court. Did he oppose Lincoln's unconstitutional acts?

    he upheld most: here is a portion from the website: ​

    "Secession divided the Supreme Court. Justice John A. Campbell, who thought disunion wrong, resigned and went sadly home to Alabama. Justice James Moore Wayne of Georgia, last survivor of Marshall’s Court, remained; until his death in 1867, he voted to sustain all the war measures the Court passed judgment on"​

    Justice Wayne expressly agreed with Chief Justice Taney in every aspect of the Dred Scott decision, Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1856).
