Upshur_View_of_Constitution_coverMandeville, LA  – UPDATED, 15 December – THE COMPLETE BOOK IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD The Founders Pass is happy to announce we’ve undertaken to modernize the Abel Upshur classic “Review of Justice Story’s Commentaries on the Constitution” and release it in phases to the membership as a Founding Father Films Publishing release. Today we release ALL chapters of the work which covers the independence of the colonies going back to 1770.


Upshur’s critique of Story is heavily footnoted for a work of this era (1840) and is well written so the lay person can understand him.

“But whether this check be the best or the worst in its nature, it is at least one which our system allows. It is not found within the Constitution, but exists independent of it. As that Constitution was formed by sovereign States, they alone are authorized, whenever the question arises between them and their common governmentt, to determine, in the last resort, what powerrs they intended to confer on it. This is an inseparable incident of sovereigntyy; a right which belongs to the States, simply because they have never surrendered it to any other power.” – Abel Upshur
