Abstract

The speaker discusses how settlers in New Hampshire became transformed into founding fathers of a microrepublic. The allegiences of the people became fluid and different groups of citizens arrived at different understanding about constitution, and even which constitution might govern their hearts and minds. It's a tale in which popular sovereignty, as practices by the pioneers, was empowering and creative but also risky and ultimately dangerous.
