John Dickinson

He comes off badly in 1776 as an opponent of independence and at least somewhat in John Adams too though his emotional speech on the horrors of what would occur provided a respectful dissent. Think someone from the South c. 1860. Also, overall, some might get an unfair view of his overall career. See, e.g., the "Declaration of the Causes and of the Necessity of Taking Up Arms." JD even was involved in the ratification of the Constitution.
