James Wilson

Author Code: AJWL

Born: Sep. 14, 1742 - Carsherdo, Scotland

Died: Aug. 28, 1798 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Wilson was an active American revolutionary patriot. After settling in America in 1765, he studied law and was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 1767. In 1774 he published Considerations on the Nature and Extent of the Legislative Authority of the British Parliament, a pamphlet which inferred that Parliament had no authority to make laws for the American colonies. He was elected to the Continental Congress in 1775.

Wilson served in Congress until 1777, again in 1782-83, and finally from 1785 to 1787. He was influential in securing the ratification of the Constitution by Pennsylvania in 1788. He later helped to draft the Pennsylvania Constitution. He served as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1789 until his death.
