A timely critique of the U.S. political system from the viewpoint of the anti-federalists, featuring Luther Martin, a Maryland delegate to the constitutional convention who:
- Feared the executive would be a virtual king and far too powerful
- Thought many framers of the constitution were seeking an American empire – he did not
- Opposed the continuation of the slave trade and the three-fifths clause
Learn how the anti-federalists, not the framers, were responsible for the Bill of Rights.
