When The United States Constitution was signed by representatives of the first states in the United States of America, during the Federal Convention of 1787, it was only the beginning of what proved to be an arduous state-by-state ratification process. The Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution Series is a reference collection that aims to preserve the state-by-state debates about the ratification of The United States Constitution.
This volume, XXIX, details the public and private ratification debates in Vermont and in the Confederation Congress. This documentary series is a research tool of remarkable power, an unrivaled reference work for historical and legal scholars, librarians, and students of the Constitution.
