For September 1, 2009: Which state did not send any delegates to the Constitutional Convention? Who insisted that the Bill of Rights be adopted? Who gave the most speeches? Begin your research at the National Archives' Charters of Freedom website, where you can view original documents, read transcriptions, and gather biographical information about the Founding Fathers who attended the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. High resolution images of documents can be downloaded for printing and observation while changes in the U.S. Constitution are indicated with links to the current verbiage or amendment. In addition, there is an article about the restoration of the historic murals found in the rotunda of the National Archives. This is a great site for teachers and students studying the U.S. Constitution.
