In 1786 a constitutional convention is called to discuss the government of the United States.Delegates from the colonies met in the old pennsylvania state house
The convention had 55 delegates including half being lawyers and the continental congress attended.George washington attended also to help with the new system for the government.
The delegates assembled at the convention not knowing what was going to happen.Something that everyone knew is that the government must protect the peoples rights.
The convention began but they needed a president for the convention so they elected George Washington.The delegates needed rules for the convention so they made rules before some discussions would start.
The virginia plan came up in the convention for the government to have three branches.Those branches were,legislative,executive,and judiciary.
On June 15 the virginia plan and the New Jersey plan made a compromise of the two put together.Those two plans as the great compromise are what make up the government we have today.
