Blogs celebrate the 250th anniversary of John Dickinson’s “Letters From a Farmer in Pennsylvania”

In celebration of the 250th anniversary of John Dickinson’s “Letters From a Farmer in Pennsylvania,” Robert Natelson, senior fellow in constitutional jurisprudence at the Independence Institute, Heartland Institute and the Montana Policy Institute, has written a series of five guest blogs on the “Penman of the Revolution.” The blogs were published in The Volokh Conspiracy, a group blog on law and public policy written by law professors from across the country. Cofounded by Eugene Volokh and Alexander (“Sasha”) Volokh in 2002, Volokh Conspiracy blogs are posted in the opinion section of the Washington Post webpage.
