Colonial Intentions and Current Realities of the First Amendment, 125 U. PA. L. REV. 737 (1977)

Abstract

History is seldom simple or forthright. This is surely true of
the concept of freedom of expression as expounded in the Declaration
of Independence and the Constitution. It is by no means
clear exactly what the colonists had in mind, or just what they
expected from the guarantee of freedom of speech, press, assembly,
and petition.
