American History Lecture with Gary Hylander: Constitutional Convention (YH)

August 11, 2019 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

In the summer of 1787, fifty-five delegates gathered in Philadelphia to amend the Articles of Confederation. At the urging of James Madison and others, the delegates discarded the Articles an-d established a new Constitution. A vigorous debate swept the nation over whether or not to accept the Constitution, which established a more powerful federal government. Although John Adams was not present at Philadelphia, he applauded the work of the delegates as “the result of good heads prompted by good hearts.”
