 John Taylor (1754–1824). Essay by Susan F. Sili. “How Taylor spent the balance of his years is best expressed by Marshall Wingfield in his history of Caroline County Virginia. ‘From 1776 to 1781 Taylor was member of the Virginia Legislature and as such added his strength to that of Richard Henry Lee, Patrick Henry, James Monroe and George Mason in firmly opposing the plans of Washington for a more perfect union and a more compact nation. For to understand the life and activities of John Taylor it must be constantly bourn in mind that he was a Virginian First and an American second.’ ” (Submitted on September 20, 2009.)
