Story of our Constitution
Showing the process of creating our constitution.
In 1776 America would declare it's independence from England
Ten years later in May, there would be a convention to draft a Constitution and Government for this new found independent country.
My name is James Madison. I will write everything down so we will have a record . People will refer to me as the Father of the Constitution.
There were leaders from all of the states in the Union. George Washington was selected as the leader of the convention.
There was much debate between the states and leaders. The new constitution had to be approved by the states for it to become law. It needed nine out of 13 votes to become law.
A new government was created in the summer of 1788. New Hampshire was the ninth state to vote yes.
I would become the first president of this great country.
