Storyboard Text

  • The Making of the Constitution
  • It started in the wonderful state of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the spring of 1787. The United States was not yet “united”, and the Congressman sent for each of the 13 colonies to come to the Independence Hall of Philadelphia. They called them over to make a draft of a historical document,one that we know as the Constitution of the United States.  
  • After being persuaded, George Washington along with a group of important people gathered together to establish America's government and fundamental laws.  These people included, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, etc. 
  •  James Madison was in charge of writing down the first parts of the document. He was responsible for co-writing the Federalist Papers, and he was the sponsor for the Bill of Rights! George Washington was the President of the Constitution that means that he is responsible for the Constitution, being in existence. Alexander Hamilton was George Washington’s Secretary of the Treasury. He was responsible for the convention, and was the one to persuade George Washington to come.
  • I'm James Madison
  • I'm Benjamin Franklin
  • All of these men, along with many others, had very important parts in this event. When the Constitution was complete , they all signed their names, which proved that they agreed with these laws. 
  • I'm Pres. George 
  • I'm Alex Hamilton
  • I'm Thomas Jefferson
  • Today, if it wasn't for what these men did, we wouldn't have a United States today, and if we did, it would be much different than it is today. I hope you learned as much as I have! Thanks!
