Abstract:
From the close of the American Revolution to the ratification of the United States Constitution there was a deep and increasing conviction among a considerable portion of North Carolinians that certain fundamental rights, based on the law of nature and guaranteed by various charters and statutes of England, were violated and jeopardized. This is the subject of the pamphlet anonymously published in the summer of 1787 under the title, "The Independent Citizen."
