Author: Virginia. General Assembly.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Thomas Ritchie

Description: Unrecorded


Only surviving copies are bound in a collection of resolutions adopted by the December 1819 Assembly (1820.027) remonstrating against federal laws, and judicial interpretations thereof, the Assembly deemed to be blatantly unconstitutional; the main trigger for these resolutions was the Supreme Court decision in McCulloch v. Maryland case the preceding March, though the larger concern was the use of the "necessary and proper" clause to undermine the power and sovereignty of the individual states. Here, the House ordered that resolutions proposed by Branch T. Archer of Powhatan County on December 22, 1819 be printed along with the text of the McCulloch v. Maryland decision for the use of the Assembly in its deliberations. Press attribution here to the partnership then conducting the press of public printer Thomas Ritchie; he was also ordered to produce the collection on February 12, 1820.
