The Unjustly Neglected Roger Sherman: A Conversation with Mark David Hall

The Library of Law and Liberty has an important podcast:
This edition of Liberty Law Talk is a discussion with Mark David Hall about American framer Roger Sherman who was the only framer to sign the Articles of Association, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution. At the Constitutional Convention, he spoke more than all but three delegates and helped forge the Connecticut Compromise. Yet his writings remain relatively obscure. To help rectify this is Liberty Fund’s new volume entitled Collected Works of Roger Sherman, edited by Hall.
You'll want to buy the book and listen to the podcast.Without Roger Sherman , there might not have been a United States of America.
