We have talked a lot in class about the Constitutional Convention held in Philadelphia in May of 1787.

At that meeting, delegates worked on a "Plan" to revise the Articles of Confederation and make a better blue print for our government.

Below are several video clips- you MUST watch the first video, and you may choose to watch the others!
