Constitutional Convention

Also called the “Philadelphia Convention of 1787”, the Constitutional Convention was an effort by the states to revise the Articles of Confederation. The delegates to the Convention were specifically instructed to recommend amendments to the Articles which would then be passed by Congress and ratified by the states. The delegates to the Constitutional Convention decided the Articles of Confederation were fundamentally flawed and that it would be necessary to replace them with a new Constitution.

In many ways, it was a miracle the Convention ever happened.
