Synopsis of Publisher: We the people at Who HQ bring the full story to the reader about the arguments and everything about how the United States Constitution came into being.
On 17 September 1787 – four years after the American War of Independence –the Constitution laid out the supreme law of the United States of America. It is easy today for us to take this blueprint of our government as an asset. But the framers– a group of fifty-five men from almost all the original 13 states– for many months argued fervently over what ended up being just a four-page document. Here is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the hotly fought issues – between Northern and Southern states, large states and little ones – and the key players such as James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and George Washington who endured countless changes to make the Constitution happen.
