The case of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby that was recently decided by the Supreme Court was not the first time in American history that faith had a role in challenging the authority of a government agency. Author Amity Shlaes wrote about ALA Schechter Poultry, the Hobby Lobby of the New Deal era, in a recent article on National Review Online. The story of this remarkable case and the small-time butchers who broke the New Deal’s National Recovery Administration is captured in The Forgotten Man Graphic Edition: A New History of the Great Depression, published by HarperCollins, adapted by Chuck Dixon from Shlaes’s book and illustrated by award-winning artist Paul Rivoche.
