Storyboard Text

  • Congress called for a Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia to revise the Articles of Confederation.
  • Many delegates, including James Madison, gathered at the Convention on May 25, 1787. On the very first day, there was a debate on whether or not the creation of a new government was needed, but later the Framers felt that it was necessary, and therefore, a new Constitution was needed.
  • After many differences and resolutions through a series of compromises, the creation of a new government, the planning of the structure, limitations, and functions of the new government, and the drafting of the Constitution, it was finally completed on September 17, 1787, in the same year that the Constitutional Convention was organized.
