HIS Story

Donald E. Wilson is a native Californian.

He was conferred a Master's Degree in Government with a specialization in political theory from California State University Sacramento. His first work, St. Andrew's American Revolution, explains the true ideas and nature of the Founders' Whig philosophy.

Mr. Wilson is descended from several revolutionary families including the Scotch-Irish (not Scots-Irish) Norvell family of the Old Bruton Church in Colonial Williamsburg. His 5th Great Grandfather Norvell was one of General Washington's officers and served at Trenton, Monmouth, Brandywine, and Valley Forge before he was taken a Prisoner of War at the fall of Charleston.

Mr. Wilson is a Scotch-Irish Presbyterian Whig like his ancestors.

When not reading theory, Mr. Wilson enjoys football, baseball, coaching his kids, playing with his dogs, genealogy, and experimenting with growing new things in his garden. He has been married to his wife Susan for over 20 years.

In keeping with the Whig spirit of civic republicanism, he has served on the board of the St. Andrew's Society of Sacramento, coached little league, he is active in his local Chamber of Commerce and has served in various local positions both appointed and elected.

Donald E. Wilson is a veteran of the United States Navy and a member of the American Legion.

About The Book

About the book

Any American who has wondered why constitutional interpretation by "experts" seems to have nothing to do with the words written in the Constitution will find this book a must read.

The present theories of the U.S. Constitution would have Americans believe the absurd notion that the bottom-up, devolved power of the Federal system was born out of the top-down, divine-right monarchy of England. Somehow Americans are supposed to believe the king's prerogative is the natural precursor to the people's prerogative.

No one can understand the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution without understanding the difference between the words "compact" and "contract."

The tradition of compact existed in Scotland long before England ever experimented with and rejected republicanism in the 1640s.

The Scottish tradition of compact is what James Madison, Jr. used to frame the Constitution and what Madison's mentor used when he helped Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration.,

Ever wonder where the right to keep and bear arms, enumerated powers, common defense, and the rights in The Bill of Rights really come from?


Any American, historian, or political theorists will benefit from reading St. Andrew's American Revolution.
