The Declaration of Independence was a glorious day for all Americans. It's the day we finally declared our independence from Britain. This glorious moment took place in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776.It took about a year for America to fight the British and gain our independence To this day we are very grateful for this rewarding opportunity. Without this gain America would not be where it would today.
The Articles of Confederation was signed on March 1,1781. It was America's first "constitution" It stated how each state would be represented in voting circumstances. It also established the functions of the National Government. It established a weak central government which prevented the states from forming their own foreign diplomacy.
During the year of 1787 two groups started to form, Anti-Federalists and Federalists. The Anti-Federalists opposed the ratification of the Constitution and the Federalists supported the ratification of the Constitution.

The Constitutional Convention was formed in February of 1787. This Convention took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Many well-known delegates participated such as, George Washington, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, James Wilson, John Rutledge, and many others.
The Virginia Plan was ratified on may 29,1787. 1787 was a very busy but rewarding year for America.The Virginia plan was created by James Madison but was proposed by Edmund Randolph. This plan was purposed for the hope of forming a new government and changing the way the votes were counted in each state. They wanted the votes to be based on the population in each state, rather than one vote per state.
The New Jersey was purposed by William Patterson. The New Jersey Plan was also known as the Small State Plan. It was put forth to try and reconstruct the Articles of Confederation. It wanted each state to have an equal amount of votes.
