Confounding Father: A Contrarian View of the U.S. Constitution

Confounding Father: A Contrarian View of the U.S. Constitution

This documentary tells the story of the constitutional convention from the contrarian viewpoint of the opponents of the document. It serves as a timely reexamination of the U.S. political system and features Luther Martin, a Maryland delegate to the 1787 constitutional convention who opposed the continuation of the slave trade and the three-fifths clause. He also feared the unlimited taxing power of the national government, and thought many framers of the constitution were seeking an American empire.
