This work approaches the influence of the Middle Temple on the United States from three angles. It first describes the participation of Middle Temple-educated lawyers in crucial events leading up to and through the American Revolution. Next, drawing on personal and often humorous transatlantic correspondence, it dissects the formative experiences of the American colonists who studied at the Middle Temple in London during the 18th century. Finally, it sets forth the stories of distinguished and notable colonial families that benefited from a Middle Temple education.
