1785, Declaration of Rights and Constitution (Franklin)
1785 Declaration of Rights, also the Constitution of the Form of Government, agreed to by the representatives of the freemen of the State of
Franklin. These representatives had been elected for the convention at Greensbvlle beginning November 1785. This was published in 1786 in Philadelphia. A
preface explained that a committee which proposed the constitution began with the North Carolina constitution, and made various changes. The preface
indicated that this proposed "Frankland" constitution was a work in progress. However the report and constitution was rejected and the North Carolina
constitution adopted. Of note, this may also be called the "Houston" constitution. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of titles originally held by the
American Antiquarian Society Library in Worcester, Massachusetts).
