“Unless the States will content themselves with a full and well-chosen representation in Congress and vest that body with absolute powers in all matters relative to the great purposes of war, and of general concern … we are attempting an impossibility, and very soon shall become (if it is not already the case) a many-headed monster–a heterogeneous mass–that never will or can steer to the same point.”
GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Fielding Lewis, 1780
