  • In this storyboard, I am going to explain the formation of the United States Constitution and which origin it has.
  • The Constitution of the United States of America (initially 13 colonies) was signed on September 17, 1787; by delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia with the aim of establishing national laws and guaranteeing the basic rights.
  • 2
  • This constitution has been written by George Wahington, Benjamin Franklin and James Madison; among others.
  • 3
  • It was initially ratified in 1781 as the Articles of Confederation giving the Congress the national power. This caused the observation of weakness of the national government, and the Thirteen Colonies needed a stronger and stabler government.

  • Having realised about it and in 1786, Alexander Hamilton called to the 13 colonies for a meeting in Philadelphia called the Constitutional Convention to argue a new government's significance.
  • In this convention, the thirteen delegates sent to Philadelphia from the colonies (1 per colony) discussed about the new government. Here, they established three branches. 
  • These three branches were: executive, legislative and judiciary
  • This Constitution of The United States of America was finally signed one year later, in 1787. Through it, a Federal system was imposed with the government.
