The Framers meet was on March 25, 1787. All of the states except Rhode Island sent delegates to Philadelphia.
I George Washington will be the President of this convention.
Two major plans were offered for the new government. The Virginia plan and the New Jersey plan.
We have another plan.
I have a plan I'd like to announce.
The framers agreed to the Three-Fifths compromise. This odd compromise disappeared from the Constitution with the adoption of the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery in 1865.
Oh yea, it provides that all "free person" should be counted.
What about the Three-Fifths compromise?
I agree with that idea.
On September the convention approved the constitution, but there was two sides of the ratification. The federalists and the anti-federalists.
I'm fully federalists!
The convention has approved the Constitution!
I am Anti-federalist!
Hey, did you know that the new congress was set in place on March 4, 1789?
George Washington took the oath of office as the first president of the U.S. with John Adams as vice president.
Today April 30, 1789 I announce George Washington as the first president of the United States.
