Thank you…did you purposefully omit Francis Nigel Lee?
No … when one starts making these lists one inevitably leaves someone out who should be included. Lee should definitely be included.
I find it curious that you include Hancock, Ames, and Adams in your list of anti-federalists. I’m not criticizing, but only remarking that Henry was very much opposed to ratification of the Constitution, which he predicted would lead to the loss of State sovereignty. The others (Calhoun excepted) were more Hamiltonian in their views.
Different usage of word “Revolutionary” at that point.
