Joseph Hewes and Independence: A Suggestion

Record #:
This article discusses historical assumptions made based on John Adams' account of Continental Congress proceedings. The account states that success of the final vote on and in favor of independence depended on the sudden decision of Joseph Hewes of North Carolina, and examines whether he was in the \"cold party\" or if he was a moderate.
