Calvin Johnson chronicles the history of the U.S. Constitution in his book Righteous Anger at the Wicked States. The author argues that the U.S. Constitution was adopted because of the Founding Fathers' anger at the states for their failure to pay the requisitions that would have helped pay off the Revolutionary War debt. This event was hosted by the Harvard Law School chapter of the American Constitution Society in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
