Clarkson, Paul S., and R. Samuel Jett. Luther Martin of Maryland. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Press, 1970.
Annotation / Notes: The life of Luther Martin (1748-1826) reminds us that not all patriots of the revolutionary generation were on the winning side of each issue. Martin was a talented lawyer elected to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. During the deliberations, he found that he could not support the concept of a strong central government as crafted by his fellow delegates. He was a leader in Maryland's unsuccessful anti-federalist opposition to ratification. Later, Martin was noteworthy as one of Aaron Burr's chief defenders during the former Vice President's treason trial.
