In regards to the Constitution who was Luther Martin?
He was a delegate from Maryland to the Constitutional Convention. He argued strongly against the strong central government conceived in the Virginia plan. Although he stayed through most of the convention and helped work out the Great Compromise, ultimately he could not support the new Constitution and left the convention before its work was finished. In speeches and newspaper articles he argued strongly against ratification. Interestingly, despite his strong Anti-Federalist sentiments, he later came into such conflict with Thomas Jefferson that he ulimately became a supporter of the Federalist party.Michael Montagne
