Willmoore Kendall and George W. Carey argue that a new, largely contrived political tradition has gained currency in many legal, academic, and political circles. This new tradition, set forth by Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address, holds that our fundamental political ideas are derived from the Bill of Rights and the “all men are created equal” clause of the Declaration of Independence. Using this approach developed by Eric Voegelin, the authors examine the documents that are extremely important to an understanding of our political origins: “the Mayflower Compact,”” the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut,”” the Massachusetts Body of Liberties, the Virginia Bill of Rights, the Constitution” itself, and “the FederalistPapers.”
