Bloggers on UndeadRevolution.Wordpress.com now state they have found documentation from the revolutionary era that proves the framers of our Constitution used Vattel's writings to define the meaning of the term "natural born citizen" -- a hotly debated issue. UR is a group of university historians--not your average blogger, so their research is important. They plan to publish the results of their research either in a professional journal or perhaps a book.

If you search Jefferson's Rebels, you will find numerous articles on this topic. Use either the keywords "vattel" and/or "natural born citizen."
