In september, 1786 delegates met in Annapolis, Maryland. They believed creationing national trade laws would help economies of every state.
55 delegates that were at the Constitutional Convention were an impressive group. They became the founding fathers of the United States. Some of America's most famous men were at the convention .
We could just make a new government
It could have three branches
Many people who showed up didn't know what to expect. When they got there they all agreed the government should protect people's right. They were faced with the challenge of how to make a strong government but not too strong to be controlled.
NO THEY SHOULDN'T!!!
SLAVES SHOULD BE COUNTED!!!
The delegates elected George Washington as president of the convention. They chose the rules of the convention; to consider all ideas, to be able to change sides in a debate, to have private discussions and to have the doors/windows closed.
The delegates came up with a plan to make a whole new government, it would have three branches including The legislature branch, the executive, and the judiciary branch.
The delegates had to agree if slaves were counted as the population, Since no one could agree they made the three-fifths compromise.
