    These days, the Supreme Court basically treats the BOR the same as applied to states and the feds, except for a few exceptions (e.g., obscenity and juries in some ways) but one thing that interests me is how the BOR was applied to federal territories and D.C. (of special interest in respect to the 2A) before 1865. So few cases arose covering, e.g. the 1A, in federal courts, but you’d think some disputes would arise given there were a sizable population in federal areas. The Northwest Ordinance, e.g., protected certain rights.
