220 years ago today…

It was on this day in 1787 that delegates first began to meet in Philadelphia to start writing a new Constitution for the country. They kept the deliberations a secret as they abandoned the previous Articles of Confederation in order to fundamentally change the way the new country would come together. It took them just over four months to finish redesigning the foundation of the United States of America. Not bad, if you ask me.
