    Pennsylvania’s Populist Constitution | The Drafting of America’s First Constitutions

    Pennsylvania’s Populist Constitution | The Drafting of America’s First Constitutions

    As one of the most radically democratic constitutions in American history, the Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776 sought to ensure government “by the people” rather than by a king.
    In this Cutting Room Floor episode of the FedSoc Films Podcast, we feature three experts from our film “The Drafting of America’s First Constitutions,” which explores the development of state constitutions in revolutionary America. Professor John Dinan of Wake Forest College, Judge Jeffrey Sutton of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Prof. Robert Williams of Rutgers Law School had lots to say about Pennsylvania’s first constitution and its impact on the development of constitutional thought.
