The English pursuers were ambushed by the Scots force, and completely overwhelmed. King Edward laid waste to the Lothians in an event that would be known as the " Burnt Candlemas ". His supply lines were overstretched, and following the sinking of his fleet, and the Scots scorched earth policy, Edward had to turn homewards, but not before being ambushed and nearly taken by Lord Douglas's men outside Melrose.
Douglas was present at the Battle of Poitiers where he was knighted by the French King. Douglas fought in the King's own Battle , but when the fight seemed over Douglas was dragged by his men from the melee. Froissart states that " Under the auspice of this office, Douglas seized Hermitage Castle in Liddesdale from the English in response to their depredations on Eskdale. His ideas, his conscience, his convictions are his own concern, not the government's.
After an American has been in a totalitarian country for several months, he is greatly relieved when he reaches home. He feels that bonds have been released and that he is free.
He can speak above a whisper, and he walks relaxed and unguarded as though he were no longer being followed. After a recent trip I said to a neighbor, "It's wonderful to be back in a nation where even a riot may be tolerated. A "communist" can be prosecuted for actions against society, but not for expressing his views as to what the world order should be. Although television and radio time as well as newspaper space is available to the affluent members of this society to disseminate their views, most people cannot afford that space.
Hence, the means of protest, and the customary manner of dissent in America, from the days of the American Revolution, has been pamphleteering. Other methods of expression, however, are also protected by the First Amendment — from picketing, to marching on the city streets, to walking to the State Capital or to Congress, to assembling in parks and the like.
It was historically the practice of state police to use such labels as "breach of the peace" or "disorderly conduct" to break up groups of minorities who were protesting in these unorthodox ways. The real crime of the dissenters was that they were out of favor with the Establishment, and breach of the peace or disorderly conduct was used merely as a cloak to conceal the true nature of the prosecution. That Clause provides that no State shall deny any person "liberty" without "due process.
Breach of the peace and disorderly conduct could, therefore, no longer be used as an excuse for the prosecution of minorities.
Parades, of course, can be regulated to avoid traffic problems and to allow for easy access to public offices by other people. Pickets may be regulated as to numbers and times and places. But the basic right of public protest may not be abridged. While violence is not protected by the Constitution , lawful conduct, such as marching and picketing, often boils over into unlawful conduct because people are emotional, not rational, beings.
So are the police; and very often they arrest the wrong people. For the police are an arm of the Establishment and view protesters with suspicion. Yet American protesters need not be submissive. A speaker who resists arrest is acting as a free man.
The police do not have carte blanche to interfere with his freedom. They do not have the license to arrest at will or to silence people at will. This is one of the many instances showing how the Constitution was designed to keep government off the backs of the people. Our Constitutional right to protest allows us more freedom than most other people in the world enjoy.

Yet the stresses and strains in our system have become so great and the dissents so violent and continuous that a great sense of insecurity has possessed much of the country. Seven of his fellow justices voted to postpone until the next term any argued case in which Douglas's vote might make a difference. Douglas's formal resignation was submitted, as required by Federal protocols, to his long-time political nemesis, then- President Gerald Ford.
In his response, Ford put aside previous differences, and paid tribute to the retiring justice, writing:. May I express on behalf of all our countrymen this nation's great gratitude for your more than thirty-six years as a member of the Supreme Court.
Your distinguished years of service are unequaled in all the history of the Court. Ford also hosted Justice Douglas and his wife Cathleen as honored guests at a White House state dinner later that same month, writing of the occasion later: Douglas maintained that he could assume judicial senior status on the Court, and attempted to continue serving in that capacity, according to authors Woodward and Armstrong , and refused to accept his retirement, trying to participate in the Court's cases well into , after John Paul Stevens had taken his former seat.
When Douglas tried in March to hear arguments in a capital-punishment case, Gregg v. Georgia , the nine sitting justices signed a formal letter informing him that his retirement had ended his official duties on the court.
Only then did Douglas withdraw from Supreme Court business. It often results in defects in reasoning, decision making, emotions, and feeling. Douglas's first wife was Mildred Riddle, a teacher at North Yakima High School six years his senior, whom he married on August 16, They had two children, Mildred and William Jr.
Douglas would not hear about Riddle's death in because his children had stopped talking to him. On October 2, , Douglas had thirteen of his ribs broken after he was thrown from a horse and tumbled down a rocky hillside. He didn't give a damn what people thought of him. Douglas's former friend Thomas Gardiner Corcoran represented Riddle in the divorce, securing alimony with an "escalator clause" that financially motivated Douglas to publish more books.
Helens Lodge, a mountain wilderness lodge in Washington state at Spirit Lake , where she was working for the summer as a waitress,.
For much of his life, Douglas was dogged by various rumors and allegations about his private life, originating from political rivals and other detractors of his liberal legal opinions on the Court—often a matter of controversy. In one such instance in , Republican Rep. Bob Dole of Kansas attributed his court decisions to his "bad judgment from a matrimonial standpoint", and several other Republican Members of Congress introduced resolutions in the House of Representatives , though none ever passed, that called for investigation of Douglas's moral character.
Four years after retiring from the Supreme Court, William O. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. Brennan , Thurgood Marshall and Harry Blackmun. Army private, which was inscribed on his headstone. Lane engaged in further research — consulting applicable provisions of the relevant federal statutes, locating Douglas's honorable discharge and speaking with Arlington Cemetery staff.
Lane therefore concluded, "Legally, then, Douglas may have had a plausible claim to be a 'Private, U. Army,' as his headstone at Arlington reads. The papers of William O. Douglas from his career as professor of law, Securities and Exchange commissioner, and associate justice of the United States Supreme Court were bequeathed by him to the Library of Congress.
