Description
In 1787, the newly established United States was in trouble. The central government had too little power and too little money. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and fifty-three other delegates gathered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to find a way to solve these problems. After more than three months of work, the delegates, led by George Washington, had created the U.S. Constitution. It was finished on September 17, which is now celebrated as Constitution Day.
