A few extra notes. To sort, click on name, start date, end date or years - click on them again to reverse sort. on each teamname to highlight its line. The 'recess' in the filter option refers to recess appointments. 'Chief' refers to chief justices. In the color party option, the colors are:
blue - Democrat, red - Republican, purple - Federalist, black - Whig, pink - Independent.
There is much more I'd like to do with this if I had the time. I would especially like to add in a tooltip to give more biographical information about each individual, and perhaps more sortable/filtering options. Any criticism and feedback please get in touch via twitter - @jalapic. Code and data are available on my GitHub.
