The USA Constitution was written by 55 men who met at the Philadelphia Convention in 1787.
There were no women among the delegates. There were no native Americans. Black people, slaves and poor farmers were not present either.
By May 25, 1787, the delegates from over half of the states had arrived in Philadelphia.
In 4 months the delegates wrote the Constitution which has lasted over 200 years!
The delegates decided that what they said at the Convention would remain a secret for 30 years. They were afraid that the people might not accept the Constitution if they knew all the disagreements the Framers had.
The most important delegates to the Convention were George Washington, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin. They were all for a strong national government.
Benjamin Franklin attended the Convention as a delegate from Pennsylvania. He was highly respected by the Americans.
James Madison is known as the “Father of the Constitution”. Much of what we know about the Philadelphia Convention is based on his notes.
George Washington was chosen as the president of the Convention. He was known as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces during the Revolution.
During the long debates, the Framers couldn’t reach a decision. A special committee of one delegate from each state was formed to find a solution. The result of their work is known as the Great Compromise.
The main idea of this compromise was that Congress would have two parts or houses. These houses would be the Senate and the House of Representatives.
