Our New President
There were 55 delegates other wise known as "The Convention Delegates", half were lawyers, others were farmers, and merchants. This Convention became well known but it did not show a diverse group of races.
When "The Delegates Assemble", they didn't know why they were there, but they could all agree that they needed to protect peoples rights.
