Talk:Constitution of Vermont (1777)
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
It is absolutely necessary, for the welfare and safety of the inhabitants of this State, that it should be, henceforth, a free and independent State; and that a just, permanent, and proper form of government, should exist in it, derived from, and founded on, the authority of the people only, agreeable to the direction of the honorable American Congress. The link American Congress points to the United States Congress. Since this was written in 1777, I believe it would be more appropriate to link American Congress to the Continental Congress. I will change the link later if there are no objections.--RLent 15:59, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

First (partial) ban on slavery in North America?
The Lee Ann Cox sources in this article have dead-end links and don't point to material suggesting that the Vermont constitution was the first to (partially) ban slavery. The History channel gives it credit for doing so. See: History.com Staff (2010). "New Connecticut (Vermont) declares independence". History Channel. A+E Networks. Retrieved 2016-04-01.
Vermont’s constitution was not only the first written national constitution drafted in North America, but also the first to prohibit slavery and to give all adult males, not just property owners, the right to vote.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HopsonRoad (talk • contribs)
