“Why try to understand the American mind in 1776?
Such a study will enable us to comprehend the meaning and significance of the Declaration of Independence, the legality and nature of America’s War for Independence, and the reasons for the kind of civil government created by the U.S. Constitution.
What is so important about understanding these events and documents of the late 18th Century, when we are living in the 21st Century?
