DDH – John Dickinson Saves Delaware
While waiting for a week for more delegates to arrive, the Virginia delegates have been meeting and discussing the plan that James Madison plans to propose.
when John Dickinson of Delaware gets a whiff of what is going on, he iDDs appalled. Not only is the Virginia delegation planning to NOT simply “fix” the Articles of Confederation, they appear to be proposing a new central government that seems – at least on paper – destined to subsume small states like his into their control.
He sends for help, but will it arrive before the Convention is derailed after barely getting started?
