Excerpt from State Government in Maryland, 1777-1781 Most accounts of the Revolutionary period in American history have partially, if not wholly, neglected local con ditions in the separate States. Military events, rather than legal and economic conditions, have chiefly occupied the attention of historians, when the States themselves have been at all considered. But, to understand the real situation, it is necessary to know what measures were taken by the in dividual governments, and what were the popular sentiments upon the different questions of public policy. The attitude of the States toward Congress before the ratification of the Articles of Confederation has an important bearing upon the doctrine of sovereignty. A survey of the local conditions should reveal whether the power of the British Crown reverted to Congress, as the central authority, or whether, before the consummation of the Confederation, the indi vidual States acted merely as allies leagued together for a common cause.
