Constitution Storyboard creation process Musab Abbasi
The U.S. constitution first started forming when the government realized that they could not respond to economic problems and rebellions. They decided that the articles of confederations could no longer benefit the government.
The congress then held a meeting called the constitutional convention in Philadelphia. At the meeting there were two plans that the members approved of, the Virginia plan and the New Jersey plan. Then came the Great Compromise in which they decided to give each state the same number of representatives.
People were reluctant to accept this new form of government for many reasons. Some feared taxes, tyranny, and more economic problems. The federalist held meeting with the anti-federalist to discuss the pros and cons. These meetings got written in the newspapers and the people learned more about the new type of government.
The Constitution then got drafted and got approved of on September 17, 1787. The document began with the words "We the people" in order to show that there is one nation and that its powers are derived from the people.
In conclusion the U.S. constitution was made because of the many problems that arose with the articles of confederation and the risks that the founding fathers were will to make for the sake of their country.
