Due to a series of events like Shays's rebellion the states decided to have a meeting that was Called the Constitutional Convention
I propose a new plan the Virginia Plan
The 55 delegates who attended were all pretty well known wheir either they were lawyers,doctors,or helped write the constitution
The Delegates were unsure on what they were meeting about while some believed they were planning a whole new government others had no idea.By the time the Convention started at least 2 delegates from each state had arrived.
The delegates first order of business was to elect a president so they decided to elect the American Hero George Washington.Everytime a door was opened the delegates would stop talking until it was closed again.
The Virginia Plan was among the first to be offered it contained three branches of government and two houses in legislature.
After 2 weeks of heated debate the delegates came to what is known as the Great Compromise.Where everybody had agreed to the plan for the government.
