In response to public debate over calling a convention to revise the state's constitution, the Assembly passed an act at the end of their 1815-16 session requiring the Executive to have the proceedings of the Revolutionary Conventions of 1776 & 1776 reprinted and to have 500 copies of them distributed across the state. This item is the third title in that mandated series; these records were originally published by Alexander Purdie (1776.002); this reprint edition continues the pagination of the proceedings and ordinances for the July 1775 convention (1816.059), and then continues in the reprinted ordinances of this convention (1816.061); these three elements are complete productions in themselves with each carrying a distinct title page; as Shaw & Shoemaker recorded each part separately, so too does this Index. This series was issued after May 1816 when firm of Ritchie, Trueheart, and DuVal began.
