No. No state was ever absolved from their commitments. If you think they were, please present factual proof instead of bald statements with no support.When the states transitioned from the AoC to the Constitution, it was not a seamless motion. The states that were party to the AoC were absolved from their commitments, and they were asked to ratify the Constitution, or not.
This is again a bald statement with no supporting fact. If you think it did, please provide actual evidence of facts, not opinions.It was deemed sufficient for 9 states to ratify the Constitution for it to take effect. So when the first 9 ratified, the Constitution became active, and the other 4 states were out of the Union. It was up to these states to decide if they would join or not. If they chose not to, they would just be normal states outside of any union. Thus, the AoC were "dissolved," because it was not necessary for the states to join the new, Constitutional government.

As I said in my post: "Only the legislatures of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut sent authorized delegates. Vermont's legislature unanimously refused to send any. New Hampshire's legislature was not in session and the Governor refused to call them back, so no delegates were sent. Anyone present from New Hampshire or Vermont was not representing those states."Your account of Hartford Convention delegates is mostly true, except you leave out that two New Hampshire counties and one Vermont county each sent a delegate.
So you are saying some of the delegates, possibly the ones that came without authorization from their own states, wanted to discuss leaving the US, that it was discussed, and that it was rejected by the Hartford Convention. I have heard that claimed as well. What was it they actually said? Did they actually talk about a "right of secession"? Can you share with us their own words?I said the delegates met to discuss their lawful right to secede, not that they did secede. They discussed secession, but decided against it. Just go to the same source you pulled your information from and search the keyword, "secession."
