Abstract

How revolutionary was the American Revolutionary War? My thesis is that, for a broad cross section of Americans, the political scientific rationale of the American Revolutionary era was based on the Common Law and the Ancient Constitution. In this paper I have investigated the life and writings of John Dickinson so as to provide a standpoint from which the continuity of the Ancient Constitutional and Common Law ethos can be seen as a subtext of the American "Revolutionary" War.
