This article is the answer to the question why the virginia gentry supported the demands of yeomen farmers to close the law courts in 1774.
The law courts, or “courts,” were a branch of government that existed in the state of Virginia before the Revolution. Just like the legislature, the courts were made up of judges who were elected to serve for a term of one year. Unlike the legislature, the courts were not directly elected. Instead, the judges were appointed by the governor of the state, or the governor’s cabinet, with the assistance of the legislature.
In the late 1770s, Virginia decided that it was time to close the law courts. The reason? Yeomen farmers were threatening to close down the courts and drive the farmers out of the state. In the 1770s, the Virginia legislature decided that the courts were not only unnecessary and oppressive, but also a hindrance to the economic prosperity of the state. The legislature wanted to put a stop to the practice of farmers buying off judges and shutting down the courts.
If you think that the Virginians were worried about farmers, think again. In the 18th century, the Virginia legislature decided to put a stop to the practice of “yeomen farmers” by closing the law courts. The law was enacted in 1774, and the legislature enacted a law that said that farmers were not allowed to buy off judges. This meant that all cases involving a judge would be dismissed.
In the 1800s, the state legislature decided to make this law permanent because Virginia farmers were becoming more and more powerful. This meant that more and more farmers wanted to become judges. Thus, the legislature decided to make the law permanent.
This is a bad thing, because it requires a lot of changes, and the state legislature has no idea what this means. It just happens to be the thing that needs to change. We can change it, but the state legislature has no idea what this means.
It’s not good that something needs to change, because there are a lot of things that need to change. This isn’t one of them. Changing this law, changing the state constitution, passing a new law, changing the constitution itself… none of that is going to happen without changes.
So, the state legislature is really good at changing things, but its not really good at changing things. The state legislature is good at passing things, but its not really good at actually implementing it. The state legislature is good at changing things, but its not really good at actually changing things.
This has been one of those state legislative sessions that I’ve been to a time or two and I always find it interesting. I guess that’s because it really is a legislative session. I mean, even legislative sessions have committees and bills that are passed by the entire body and never actually come to the floor for a vote. But legislators do it all the same, so it always remains a fascinating exercise to watch them work.
