From the author's Introduction:
"The relationship of civil government to religious enterprise was important to most of the people who participated in the formation of the United States of America and its original thirteen states (and later that of Vermont). How they approached the matter in their states and later at the national level when they created a new constitution is the topic of this book. Indeed, there was a significant difference in how state legislatures approached the matter and how the Constitutional Convention did in 1786."
