"The most important editorial project in the nation." -Leonard W. Levy, constitutional historian

Virginia provided America with much of its intellectual and political leadership throughout the Revolutionary era. That leadership, however, was sorely divided over the fate of the Constitution, and the superb debate that ensued over it marked the climax of the struggle for ratification. That occured in Virginia was to loom large in the history of the new nation. This second Virginia volume contains the public and private record of the debate as captured in letters, newspapers, and the debates in the Convention.
