In the fall of 1787, the call went out: Each of the 13 states assembled special conventions to consider ratification of a proposed Constitution of the United States. Without ratification by nine conventions, the Constitution would flounder: America would be a league of states, not one nation.

At the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, the states—voting as states—had unanimously approved the Constitution. But individual delegates had fiercely opposed certain aspects of the document. Now, they returned to their home states to agitate against the Constitution. Some demanded a bill of rights. Others complained that states' rights had been violated.

Some states—such as Delaware and Georgia—quickly and unanimously ratified. Other states—such as Virginia and New York—agonized. Two states—North Carolina and Rhode Island—would not ratify at all without a bill of rights. Indeed, Rhode Island would not approve the Constitution until economic sanctions had been imposed against her.

The Constitution was a controversial document, which was passionately debated by the best minds in the land.
