A 23-year-old aristocrat was called upon to frame the New York Constitution separating it from England. He then served as liaison to General Washington in the effort to defend New York against the British Army. He proved to be the best writer and thinker in the Continental Congress and developed a plan to save the Army from disintegration. But wait! There’s more. Gouverneur Morris worked on the plan to finance the Revolution, became the most outspoken member of the Constitutional Convention and wrote the final draft of the Constitution. In many ways, his life was just beginning, He would live another active 29 years including experiencing the French Revolution. Oh, and by the way, he was a notorious ladies’ man.

Dick Hesse is a retired lawyer and law professor who holds a master’s degree in American History. He has presented history courses for NH Humanities Council, LINEC, OLLI and AIL over the past 40 years.
