It is 1787.
The Philadelphia Convention that was to revise the Articles of Confederation has met.
Instead of revising the Articles of Confederation the 55 delegates from 13 states that met in Philadelphia developed an entirely new document , the Constitution of the United States.
39 of the delegates signed the document.
The national debate is now (1787)should the states ratify this new document so it becomes the “law of the land”?
