is now the correct usage, but in
its definition of treason the Con
stitution uses the word United
States as a plural; viz "Treason
shall consist only in levying war
against 'them,' or in adhering
to 'their' enemies, giving 'them'
aid and comfort."

plural to the singular reIectd
the change that has taken place
gradually, in the nature of this
republic. All the earlier writers
employ "the United States" as a
plural; that is, as a confeder
