Constitution Day
September 17th

 

The Federal Convention convened in the State House (Independence Hall) in Philadelphia on May 14, 1787, to revise the Articles of Confederation.  Because the delegations from only two states were at first present, the members adjourned from day to day until a quorum of seven states was obtained on May 25. Through discussions and debate it became clear by mid-June that, rather than amend the existing Articles, the Convention would draft an entirely new frame of government.  All through the summer, in closed sessions, the delegates debated, and redrafted the articles of the new Constitution.  Among the chief points at issue were how much power to allow the central government, and may representatives in Congress to allow each state, and how these representatives should be elected - directly by people or by the state legislators.  The work of many minds, the Constitution stands as a modelof cooperative statesmanship and the art of compromise.


                              

The U.S. Constitution was written in 1787 by a group of 55 men with one purpose and many different personalities.  Discover which Founding Father you're most like!  Visit the following site to find out.
