The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions...
7th graders are studying the historical sources for Thomas Jefferson's idea that the states could ignore any acts of the federal government that are unconstitutional. The title of the article we are reading is is "Where Did Thomas Jefferson's States' Rights Ideas Come From". The article is in the book 33 Questions About American History You're Not Supposed to Ask by Thomas Woods.
