"The most important editorial project in the nation." -Leonard W. Levy, constitutional historian
The four states in this volume, Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey, and Connecticut, varied widely in social background, in political structure, and in the issues that concerned their citizens, yet all overwhelming supported ratification of the Constitution. The sources for the history of ratification by the four states, save Connecticut, are sparse, yet the documents provided in this volume provide a foundation for a fuller understanding of the context within which the citizens ratified the Constitution.
