Storyboard Text

  • Eh, no.
  • John Dickinson, while having proposed superb ideas to have in the Constitution, such as replacing British law with a central legislature with authority over the states, did not sign the Declaration of Independence, thinking it irrational without a national government.
  • Without Dickinson's support, the Articles of Confederation got rejected with all his proposals; civil rights protection, the strong central legislature, and Congress's power to make foreign treaties and its power over the states disappeared.
  • After over a year of revision, Congress presented a new constitution proposal and set a deadline of ratification from all thirteen states of three months. Disputes between Maryland and Virginia over land claims lengthened the process to three years.
