About this title:

A collection of eighty documents which demonstrate how local government in colonial America was the seedbed of American constitutionalism. Most of these documents, commencing with the Agreement of the Settlers at Exeter in New Hampshire, July 5, 1639, and concluding with Joseph Galloway’s Plan of Union, 1774—”the immediate precursor to the Articles of Confederation”—have never before been accessible to the general reader or available in a single volume.
