Where can I find an internet link to the US Supreme Court case of United States v. Rice (1819) ?
This was a famous case regarding the British military occupation of portions of (what is today) Maine, during the War of 1812. The complete legal reference is United States v. Rice, 17 U.S. (4 Wheat.) 246 (1819). However, I have been unable to find a link to this case on the internet. The FINDLAW website does not have this case.
Can anyone provide a link to this Supreme Court case from the year of 1819?

The Justia link is good. Also LexisONE, which is somewhat more reliable: http://www.lexisone.com/lx1/caselaw/freecaselaw?se... (free registration required)
Findlaw was bought by Westlaw (West Pub. Co./Thomson), who have no intention of improving it lest it compete with their fee-based services.
LexisONE was created by LexisNexis to undercut any upstarts like Jurisline.com (who had subscribed to Lexis CD-ROMs and then decoded and transcribed their content for free searching on the Web. And then sued Lexis to break the contract secrecy terms. And lost.
